Whooping Crane

Whooping Crane.

We will go back to big cats in a day or so. There were so many things to shoot while I was in Wisconsin. That region is loaded with opportunities. It is the place written about in “Sand County Almanac”. One place that is a must visit is The International Crane Foundation. It is the only place where all 15 species of cranes can be seen. They have some great displays and educational opportunities as well. My favorite of course was the Whooping Cranes. Incredible birds to watch and easy to photograph.

I look forward to seeing them in the wild this year when I teach at the Festival of the Cranes in New Mexico this November.
