Me first.

These beautiful sandhill cranes were in a field I drive by daily. I hope they come back. They were a pleasant surprise.

The first photo is my entry.

Looks like you have some sandhill cranes there Lorax, not herons. I love cranes. Such an incredibly graceful creature!

I don't see very well. Those were on the other side of the field.

We do have both very close by.

Thank you so much for correcting me.

How wonderful, Lorax. I have been reading about them but they do not live here. I cannot see how you decided which one was going to be your contest entry; they are all good.

The last one is pretty cute like they're marching to a band.

No way would I have gotten that photo without your bean bag tips. Where's that thread on the anything goes high definition whatever it was? I have a photo for that thread but I can't find it.
