It is Sandhill Crane Nesting Season again in Florida.  This is my every other year nest...good to see two colts still on day-4. Older one by 1/2 a day is closest to the adult. She is teaching them to find bugs.

Terrific behavior and interaction, Kathy. Mom's head provides a good sense of scale on the size of the cute little the colts.

Lovely shot Kathy! Like Ron mentioned, I like the mom's head providing scale comparing to youngsters.

This is just wonderful- so cute and so well illustrated. It must be wonderful to see these little ones learning their lessons and growing up.

Excellent behavioral image. Nice low angle and the black background really set the colts off well.
