This time of year there is not a lot to photograph. The snow is gone, the flowers aren’t up and the butterflies are in short supply. One thing we like to do is to search for nesting Sandhill Cranes. Last week we found a pair in a local wildlife are. Unfortunately I didn’t have my camera along and so I couldn’t record their antics as they walked along together.

Early one foggy morning we drove back to see if we could find them again. Unfortunately all we found were Canadian Geese. We were just about to give up when I heard some cranes but couldn’t see them in the fog. All of a sudden they came flying in and landed in a small pond.

We watched them for quite some time. At one point one of the Canada Geese was a little too close and the Sandhill Crane started running after the goose.
