I had some backyard visitors the other day and remembered to actually grab my camera and take pictures. However, I then promptly forgot they were on my camera, so here they are. I'm not sure what kind of cranes they are -- perhaps someone out there can enlighten me. I was just amazed that they stayed there while I was practically right next to them clicking away. I thought for sure once I walked toward them they would fly away. I do know they travel in pairs (one male, one female). God's creatures are just so beautiful and inspiring.
I am a retired 60-year old widow with two lovely, grown daughters. I am also blessed with a wonderful teenaged grandson, and two beautiful step-granddaughters, or granddaughters-in-love, as I choose to view it. *Grin* Happily, we all reside in Florida within 30 minutes of one another.
I also have an energetic Yorkshire Terrier/Bichon Frise mix, Tasha. I don't know what I would do without her. She brings me constant joy.
