The Fascinating Flight Of The Sandhill Crane

Photos of Sandhill Cranes were on my list as a bird and wildlife photographer. These are very large birds standing 3 to 4 feet tall sporting a 6 to 7-foot wingspan. You don't have to have the biggest lens for them to fill the frame in your camera!

Although they can be found in numerous states, one of the best places to capture them in action is at the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico, generally in December. Getting the photographs of the Sandhill Cranes as they were taking off from the pond each morning was a blast. They would go one at a time as if each one was getting clearance for takeoff.
