MAGNIFICENT

november2016-043

I have been trying for years to snap a photo of a Sand Crane and the other day I got lucky.  I was in a parking lot and this fellow walked right up to my car window.  Usually they travel around in pairs and once in a while they will have one of their young with them.  But this old man was all alone; makes you wonder what happened to his mate.  Maybe a car hit her.  I could believe that since they cross on a busy street and never hurry.  They will have traffic backed up while they stroll leisurely across.  I’m glad people do stop for them because they are magnificent creatures.  We are blessed to be able to observe them.  Do they just have one mate for life?  I have no idea but it is worth checking out.

Thanks for stopping by please come back soon.  God bless
