Sandhill Cranes at Carlos 7/5/07

In spite of temps above 90, I drove to Carlos last Thursday. As usual, I had to visit the Sandhill Crane pair that regularly hangs out on the West end of Pool 22. It was nearing sunset and, surprisingly, the bugs weren't too bad -- so I spent quite a bit of time with them. They were very tolerant of me, allowing me to take out my tripod with the 400mm lens. Except for the last two pictures, the shots were taken with a 2x converter in place.
