Sandhill Cranes Lift-off

Here are a few Sandhill Cranes from my trip to Indiana in May.  Didn’t see many this year but was able to get close to these two.  They were feeding in a field around sunrise and I followed them in the car down a dirt road.  I had to keep backing the vehicle up as they walked to keep up with them.  They finally stopped and took off and flew right in front of me.

Taken with Canon 7D and 100-400 lens, handheld out the car window.
