On our trip years ago to the Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge in DeLand Florida we were surprised to see a few Whooping Cranes flying and forging with the Sandhill Cranes. It was fun to see them interacting with the Sandhill Cranes. They were mostly far out in the fields but I managed to get a few images with them flying together in a flock. Image taken with a Canon 1D mk III with a Sigma 300-800mm lens @ 800mm with a Canon 1D mkIII.
A wonderful moment, and you caught it beautifully!
Thanks Sam. We were surprised to see them with the Sandhill Cranes!
A rare and hopeful sight to see!
Thanks! They were fun to photograph!
Ah, my favorite bird! They stick out a lot more on the ground as they tower over the other sandhills. Always have a huge smile when I see the Whooper conservation numbers going up.
Yes! It was fun to see & photograph them in with the Sandhill cranes!
WIsh I could see them here. Nice shots, Reed!
Thanks Steve! Lake Woodruff NWR is one of my favorite places to photograph! Great landscapes & Wildlife. Lots of photo opportunities!
