While waiting for Hawks at a nesting site got a suprise visit by two Sandhill Cranes at Loxahatchee.

Love the series! There's something about the second one that I really like, don't know why. Love your DOF with the last one - it really accentuates the flying birds, giving it almost a 3D effect.

Since I've never seen one in real life I'd believe that one only had half a bill. :lol: As a matter of fact, a lot of my birds are fuzzy little creatures!

I really like the last one. Nice shot.

Yes, I agree with the previous comments. I like all the sots, but the last one is especially nice. Whenever I try to take a shot of a bird in flight, I usually cut off a lot more than a portion of the beak.
