Very good capture of this beautiful Crane. Sharp details and natural colours and the background is nicely blurred.
Thanks for sharing

Lovely capture, Rick.
The Sandhill Crane is an elegant creature and it looks fabulous here foraging around in the tall green grasses.
Thanks and regards.

An excellent capture of a sandhill Crane from the summer, The POV is ideal and shows it with fine sharpness and colours against the contrasting OOf natural BG.
Interesting to see the rusty tone that the plumage acquires after it has been rubbed in the peaty ground. The same thing happens to our cranes in the breeding season.
Thanks and have a good Sunday,

I can see the intensity in its eyes..reminds me of a drive two years ago when the grounds around the farms were still in water and the herons where food searching. The look on the face is very much the same....Fine lesson Rick!

Super sharp, with excellent blurring of the background for separation. Good placement of the sandhill crane in the frame too.
TFS and have a nice day MF!

Have a nice Holidays and Happy New year. Great shot taken with fantastic lens. Amazing details of the bird, impressive blurriness of the FG and BG, very pleasant colour palette and blameless composition. Bravo and TFS.

I have heard about these birds, but have never seen one in the wild. They really are quite attractive with their rusty colored body feathers contrasting the grey, white and red coloring in the head and neck area.
I like the way you captured this particular one out in the open grasses, and in a pose that allows us to view it's entire body features. Excellent detail and beautiful natural colors. Well done!!

Very sharp and very well detailed presentation.
