Sandhill Crane, Cedar Creek Conservation Area, Anoka County, Minnesota

When birds take flight, there is no time to make adjustments. I aimed and fired as we realized we would see several sandhill cranes cross in front of us, perhaps 250 feet (77 meters) away. The only option was to aim and fire. Of three shots that had a crane, this one was the best. After years of trying, twice in the past 3-4 weeks I have taken decent photos of sandhill cranes.
