BIF, Sandhill Cranes, 70-400mm G (Pics)
Sep 1, 2012

I have been requested to present a talk and slideshow of Sandhill Cranes at a local festival in October. I have over 1000 decent shots of Sandhill Cranes in flight taken over the past three years.

I haven't had a lot of time this past season so I decided to go out today and see what I could find. I was amazed when I went out to areas I had been in the past (all the shallow ponds and wet lands we totally dry with weeds and flowers growing in them).

It seems that we have fewer Sandhill Cranes (didn't find them where they had been in the past). Although I did come across three groups with three and four in each group. Since I have not been out much I also realized my shooting BIF skills was also rusty but quickly came back.

All images handheld, shot w/A900, 70-400mm G, RAW, ISO 800, 1/1250 sec, f/7.1, apx. 66% crop and post processed in PS CS6.
