I photographed this Sandhill Crane at Bosque del Apache NWR a few years ago. Although it was early February, the setting sun really brought the background vegetation to life. I cropped the image to the 4X5 format. Please click on the image to view it full size. Thank you for viewing my image. 

Nikon DX, Nikon 500mm + 1.7X, f/8 @ 1/1000, ISO 250, Gitzo Tripod, Wimberley Head II.

A stunning image. Beautiful light and great BG, as well as fine colors and detail. One of the best Sandhill images posted here.

Amazing shot, Ron! So elegant and so perfectly presented. Doesn't get any better than this...but of course there are also your marvelous artistic renditions in P&DA with equally exciting presentations. ;)
