Wildlife field trip

Rob Schumacher discovered a field that was an evening hangout for about 40 Sandhill Cranes. We drove to see them, but the little buggers were hanging out on the far side of the field. A very long lens on a very windy day makes for mediocre pictures. I'll go back and try again some evening soon. I wonder where their chicks are.

On our way home, we saw a tiny little fox. He didn't like having his picture taken, so he took off.

When he felt safe, he stopped and watched us. He was a cute little guy.

I think the local fox population went through a scruffy phase as they changed from their heavy winter fur to their summer attire. Now that they are in their summer wear, they are quite pretty again.
