The Sandhill Cranes cover the dormant cornfields by the hundreds during the day foraging for food and seek refuge in nearby water by night so as to sleep safely. They wake at sunrise to set out once again to the cornfields. At first glance their coloring is drab and they blend into the scenery, but upon closer examination you see deep rusts, rich reds and the bright yellow-orange of their eyes. They fit perfectly into the fall pallette. Such a majestic bird! This is one of my favorite photos I took at our local community farm. The bird on the left reminds me of a graceful ballerina.
