2021—Pair of Cranes

The call of Sandhill Cranes was unmistakable Friday morning when we arrived in the dark back at the pond where we had photographed sunset the night before. As the sun tried to show itself, the clouds thickened and kept the light dim. Intermittent rain drops pelted us throughout the morning and when the sun finally broke through the clouds briefly, a rainbow colored the sky. This pair of cranes, one feeding, the other checking out the surroundings, waded in the shallow pond before taking to the sky in search of other feeding options.
