Sandhill’s in Love

These two Nebraska Sandhill Cranes were staying close together, which made for a good photo op.  They mate for life and put on quite a show with their mating dance, which I’ll share more photos of that ritual in my next post.

Taken with Canon 7D and Canon 500mm  F4 IS II with 1.4X III teleconverter out the car window

Aperture priority, 1/800 sec @ F5.6, evaluative metering, 700mm

  1. Sweet capture here. Love the warm tones of the grasses. Really sets off the birds in the scene.

  2. Thanks Doug. The corn fields weren’t the greatest backgounds but it worked on this shot.
