Just not fair

Yesterday Rob and I drove 20 miles to photograph the Sandhill Cranes. I have my camera backpack, with two cameras, a half dozen lenses of every shape and size, and a tripod strong enough to climb up. The birds stand a half mile off in the field.

Today I am driving along the highway near the Home Depot. Not only do I see two cranes, but they have a chick with them. They are about 40 feet off the road. What camera do I have? My tiny Canon SD880 pocket camera. This is as good as I could do. I thought about trying to get closer, but I didn't want the little one wandering out into highway 40.

Some days it just wasn't meant to be.
