Sandhill Cranes – Doubles

I’ve read where aircrafts are graded on their landings as they set down on an aircraft carrier.  When I saw these I had to smile and wondered if the two onlookers were somehow grading the incomings’ landings.

    I like that idea. So nice to catch them coming toward on the landing. They should get extra points for that:)

    Cool shot David. Are they still hanging around? I haven’t had the chance to head that way lately.

      Thanks Tim. The last time I went they were not there. I have seen a couple of other comments saying the same thing. Wish they would have stayed.

      Thanks Doug. The first time I went early morning I parked next to Sandy. She was there in the back on her truck for a better view. Next time you see her ask what she thought of that morning. It was a National Geographic morning. It had my heart pumping taking so many pictures. I just had to stop and enjoy. I need to go to New Mexico one year.

    Absolutely Doug! Need to mark one of the bucket list.
