Sandhill Cranes

During yesterday morning's trip to Carlos Avery, I was disappointed that I did not have any close encounters with Sandhill Cranes. The above picture is a full frame shot with a 300mm lens; it's as close as I could get since these birds were in a restricted area Southwesterly across Pool 4.
I wasn't going to post this picture; there was nothing significant about it. However, as I enlarged it, just to see how sharp it was (or wasn't, since I was not using a tripod), imagine my amazement when I saw what I have posted below.
