Three Cranes at Sunset

DSC_8032

This family of Sandhill Cranes is one I have photographed several times.  The trio lives along the shore of a little park lake here in my community.  I really enjoy seeing the three.  The baby is getting really big!  The poor juvenile does have that deformed foot which although hard to live with, seems manageable.  I have often seen the bird stand on one foot.  Wading birds, geese and ducks do stand on one foot at times to rest.

I photographed the cranes last night at about 8:00PM as the Sun was setting.  The group is most often seen in the early morning or very late afternoon.  I was at Boone Park when I took these pictures.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photograph.  Enjoy!
