Last Friday as I was driving to work I saw two Sandhill Cranes.

They were just standing on the side of the roadway. I wanted to get a picture of them so badly and was attempting to pull over. However, I didn’t have the camera with me, just my cell phone. My cell takes good pictures, but I would have been too far away to get a decent shot. I pictured myself, dressed in my uniform, trying to get as close to the birds as I could without spooking them…..and decided it wasn’t worth it. It was the first time, outside of a zoo, that I have seen a crane. Not even sure I have seen one at the zoo. They are really, really tall and magnificent.
