Sandhill In Love by 33M Sandhill In Love by 33M
This Sandhill Crane imagined himself in love with me this week,
followed me everywhere and if I was out of his sight, he would run across the sand or sidewalk at a full trot to make sure I didn't get away.

The beaks are awesome, just glad he liked me, as the beak could have been a formidable weapon on my bare or nearly bare body.....

Added a light cloud to background as he was so close to my 250 lens it was impossible to make the photo shimmer and shine on its own....

Hope you all have a wonderful day

This crane is so like The Saurus Cranes & Brolgas around here--this one has the red down past his eyes--the brolgas have the red a little further down the neck & the saurus a bit further--Amazing--be careful M--Your being followed--LOL

His wife just stood still and waited for him to come back to her,
she must see it many many times....And he did leave me to go back
to her after about 30 minutes or so.....That makes him one smart
Sandhill Crane.....LOL
