I think they adopted me....

  1. I had to keep backing up, these guys just walked up to me and fed. I was on my knees for some shots. They were at points, 5 ft. away, and too close for focus.
    this one is a portrait crop from a landscape shot, but cropped fully top to bottom.


    uncropped, just resized:
    too close to get the whole beak in:

    OOF cause he's too close for the lens to focus:

    maybe I was adopted? :shock:

    Has our wife commented that you look like any of these birds?

    gotta love to close to focus. Was this a case of wrong lens or surprise subject?

    That is close Harris,

    But so great....Love the wild life when they stay close enough to actuall enjoy.

    Good work.

    thanks for keeping up with the family of Sand Hill Cranes. I have sure enjoyed each and every image.
  6. They just kept walking right on up to me. I backed up numerous times.
