Default Mother and child

That is the mother on the right. The baby on the left is about 4 months old, and is almost full grown, but it has not yet developed the full red crown.
E-3 and 50-200mm.

Thanks Bob. Yes, I forgot to identify them. The Sandhill Cranes are so common in my neighborhood that I guess I just assumed everybody knew them.

StretchMak: you are going to love the 50-200mm.

Sandhills are a rarity here. See one and all these people come around.

They think they own the place around here, constantly walking around, in family groups until the late summer until the young ones find mates, and then always in pairs the rest of the year. And a whole family will walk right out in traffic to cross the road, knowing that all the cars will stop for them.

Are you referring to the sandhills, or the tourists?
