Okay, yes, I do know it is “proud as a peacock”, but this Sandhill Crane is certainly looking proud. This is from my close encounter with Sandhills at Orlando Wetlands Park in Christmas, Florida, where, if you remember from previous posts, two Cranes walked down Bobcat Alley with me for 50 yards for more, just keeping company. It was quite an experience. Sony RX10iv at 190mm equivalent. My birds and wildlife modifications of Program mode. 1/1000th @ f4.5 @ ISO 100. Processed in Polarr.
