Family Time:  Sandhill Cranes in Wisconsin

This is part of the “Around Lake Poygan” series I am working on.. I have never had a good shot at getting an image of a sandhill crane family. So, with this goal in mind I started out with my Pentax 150-450mm around the wild side of Lake Poygan. These was the only sandhills I found. This was the imager I saw in my mind before I started out. Strange isn’t it!

I shot it out my truck window resting on the glass. A blackbird flew in and started attacking the baby and the parents came to the rescue. Then they waded off into the deep grass.

Camera settings: ISO 800, aperture f/8, shutter 1/1000, focal length 450mm
