Week 32 #46 Unwanted/Distracting Objects

6 Comments

Living in Florida we have the good fortune to have an abundance of wild life, including sandhill cranes.  Cranes found in Florida do not migrate due to our moderate year round temperatures.  They are a common sight seen almost daily and can bring a road full of cars to a complete stop while they meander across the road.  This time of year is nesting time and the babies, usually two, are hatching.  The babies are adorable and are up and moving within a few short hours after being born.  I stopped by a nest last week to take some photos of the babies, known as colts, and the parents.  This adult was busily searching for bugs of all sorts to eat and feed to the colts.  During its search a leaf became stuck on its beak providing me a perfect shot for the theme, Unwanted/Distracting Objects.

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragemet from family and friends over the past several years I began to realize I really love it! Belonging to this blog and a local digital photo group has challenged me to look at the beauty of the world and to enjoy capturing it with my camera.

  1. Some of our sandhill cranes have already returned to The Minnesota State Mosquito Refuge. I hear them in the evening…. I don’t know what they are up to but they sure are loud.
