The Magic of Bosque del Apache: Sandhill Cranes


For my first Blog post of the new year, I want to share some images I made at Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico. For the last 4 years I have been making the Winter pilgrimage to this special place to photograph the amazing bird life that winters there, particularly the fabulous Sandhill Cranes. I spent 4.5 days there between Christmas and New Years and was lucky to have excellent conditions with lots of birds and wonderful light on several mornings. Photographing birds in flight is never easy, particularly when you are trying to get artistic compositions that do not have distracting elements.On this trip I managed to make a number of pleasing images that I am happy with. So to start out the new year here are the fabulous Sandhill Cranes of Bosque del Apache:

  1. Great images I can only kick myself that I never went when I lived a lot closer to the area. I have a few friends that go all the time. Maybe………someday.
    Happy snapping

  2. Steve, I like them all, especially the cranes calling! Haven’t seen that (or, more likely, just haven’t noticed.)
