Photos of Sandhill Cranes


Back in March, I attended a sandhill crane photography workshop. Read about it here! I wanted share some more photos from this amazing trip. We stayed at the Zapata Ranch, which is less than an hour from the national wildlife refuge where these cranes stop during their spring migration.

In the photos where the cranes are flapping their wings, it might look like they’re about to fight. But it’s actually called dancing and its their friendly way of strengthening mating bonds.
