On the Lookout by tfavretto On the Lookout by tfavretto
A pair of sandhill cranes spotted along Mount Zion Road, roughly 16 km north of Bruce Mines, ON. I'm normally not all that big on wildlife photography, but I had just gotten a new 300mm lens and figured this would be a good opportunity to try it out.

Yeah, they're really hard to get close to. From the moment they become aware of your presence, they start moving in the opposite direction, so you've got to be quick before they get too far away.

A remarkable shot and an excellent composition. They surely are beautiful birds.

Thank you, and thanks for the :+fav:. And they may be beautiful, but they're fairly common around here, and they're distracting as all hell when they're making noise while you're trying to golf.

You're most welcome. I've never seen one here, so guess I see them with a different eye than you if they're quite common there.
