Sandhill Cranes

It was not a good fly-in experience this year - I'm assuming it was a little late in the season. Last year we visited this location and there were hundreds of cranes - this year very few. Between the lighting and the limited cranes I thought it was going to be a bust but thankfully I was able to salvage a few captures.

Acorn Woodpeckers

The acorn woodpeckers were very active the first morning of the new year - this is just a sampling of the fun activity I experienced on a very cold morning (at least for us in CA.)

taken on one very foggy morning!

Hey, wait up!

I need a much better zoom lens - this was cropped significantly and due to the heavy fog, the sharpness is not up to par. With all that said, I like the way it came out. Hope you do too!

It took a while for the egret to get the fish in a position to swallow - it seemed to big for the egret but in the end, the egret won.

Still a long way to go before I perfect capturing this beautiful little bird, but this is one of the best I've gotten to-date.
