I like this picture very much, it's so natural. The atmosphere, the lvery delicate ighting and the behaviour of the cranes show us a very natural scenery. This changes from we often see on TN where people manipulate their pictures too much by blurring artificially backgrounds. You show us how it is in a very beautiful manner.

They are such nice birds with their red head and they are elegant as well. This is a good capture in action and interesting moment to witness! Thanks,
Will you be mine...or.....let's have a row...
This is great action photography. A nice point of view too.
Sandhill cranes are fun to take photos of.
have a nice week ahead.

I cannot believe this picture! It is so fantastic!
I am soooo jealous!
Do you know how many years I have gone to the Sandhill Crane Festival in Lodi, where I have seen cranes in the thousands, but not once, have I been able to take a decent shot????
This is just beautiful... a wonderful moment captured with great clarity, and like you said, against a very cooperative background.
I KNOW about their blending against the soil. : (
TFS. : )

Wonderful shot of these cranes, too!
I particularly like the terrific courtship pose in which you’ve captured them - great timing!
Also, the DOF here is spot-on and i really like seeing the exact place on the vegetation in the FG where the focus area begins...i've always liked that :)
The rather bright BG is also lovely here and it makes the subjects stand out very nicely.
So, all-in-all, it's another great work!
Bravo and TFS

There's a big drawing in our kitchen with birds. Especially their habitat is a bit the artist's interpretation.
My sister's kid asked me last week what kind of birds are these. Until now, I thought they were also a bit the artist's freedom. Until now, 'cause now I know these are Sandhill cranes.
Very good photo and content; I do like their interaction.
And as always your colors.

The thumbnail of this one caught my eye in your gallery with its fine composition, pose of the two Sandhill Cranes and the wonderful lighting. I can almost hear them calling!
TFS this beauty,

fantastcly sharp capture, TFS Ori
Looks like May is an exceptional period for Yellowstone/grand Teton!
The snow is still there, the park is again opened, probably roads also are driveable, bears get out with their cubs hungry after such a long sleep, nature is renewing .... can it be made in a small RV like a camper ?
