My Love of Birds

I took this picture last week when I was doing the blog change-over and never had a chance to post this picture. These are a pair of Sandhill Cranes and I think they are completely beautiful.

I was driving out one late morning bringing out a brunch to enjoy with my mom, when I saw these tall birds on the horizon of a large, open field. I immediately pulled over, threw on my longest lens and my 2x teleconverter and ran out as far as I could justify before completely ruining my heels. I have a great love for nature, and especially birds, so I was totally in my element. Well...I would have been better suited to be in my element with better footware for the task.

That's awesome, I can totally see you running across a field in heels.

So majestic! I have a fascination for birds, too!

Keep flip flops in the car just for these moments!
