I captured this image last month in Harns Marsh, Florida. We were standing on a berm when out of the corner of my eye spotted two Sandhill Cranes gliding in for a landing, just over our heads. They proceeded to touchdown a short distance away. As Bill Dix had pointed out in a previous image he posted, we were so close with the long lenses we had to backup, but if we had taken another step it would be into a canal. No time to remove the TC. C&C welcome.
