I’ve been out on my bike quite a bit now that the weather is warmer. It’s an easy way to get around with my foot still hurting. There’s not a lot of places to ride with a lot of nature instead of traffic but there’s a bike trail just north of me that goes through cow pastures. As soon as I got on the trail I heard the sandhill cranes. Flying across the pasture. They were pretty far away and I had only brought my shorter lens but it was cool to see them flying by.
A kildeer was far out in the pasture.
And of course lots of cows. And lots of babies! There were a lot of cream colored babies out there and a lot of them were nursing. Next year I need to get out here much sooner when they are tiny.
I saw this sandhill crane by himself standing near the fence.
Another eagle nest up in a utility tower. One of the parents was feeding a little one.
The other parent took off across the trail.
This morning started out sunny but dark clouds started to move in as I got half way down the trail so I didn’t stay too long. Thanks for all of the comments and suggestions on my foot issues. I have seen a podiatrist and gotten a painful shot. Keeping off my feet a few more weeks and hoping for the best (along with the stretches, exercises, icing, etc).
Wonderful photos of the sandhill cranes in flight!
Great action shots.
That’s my kind of bike ride. Sandhill Cranes!! Wow. I love all the cows.
I hope your foot continues to get better.
Interesting bike ride. I love the photos with the cows those babies are so cute. You take very nice photographs of birds flying, in my opinion. Hope the pain in your foot subsides. Be safe.
I enjoyed your photos.
