|This falcon was sitting on the RV next door to us- I managed to snap this through the window.|
And they are both small and large. The larger ones are lovely cranes and absolutely fearless as they stroll through the resort. They are even comfortable enough to lay down and take a little nap next to the road.
It's nice to see they look both ways when crossing the road.
As you can see here, cars driving by do not frighten them at
I was able to stand about 10 feet away to snap these images.
I probably could have gotten closer, but I was the one who was afraid. These guys are right at my eye level and that beak looks pretty lethal to me.
We also have dragonflies buzzing all over the place. I haven't been able to photo one of the really huge ones yet, but this guy was pretty nice.
There's also a bunch of ibis in the pond across the road from the park...oh wait, Left Brain is explaining it's not really a pond...it's something about water retention or run off or whatever. It's a lovely pond and as soon as I capture some ibis photographs I will post them.
Long Live the Queen of the Crane
