The Sandhill Crane family I have been occasionally observing out in the area adjacent to the horse farm pond in Northwestern Marion County, FL, is doing really well. I am thrilled! The juvenile has really grown a lot and is about five to six weeks old.
I have now photographed the trio four times since March 16, 2015. I took these latest pictures from the side of the road a long way from the birds so as to not disturb them. I photographed the cranes on April 15, 2015, at about 5:00 pm. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
