Sandhill Crane
Photographer: Jeanie Rowe
Location: Independence, MN
Story: 
I accidentally startled this crane and its mate when I came over the rise of a grassy hill. They ran the other direction, presumably to divert my attention from their nesting area, then this one made several efforts to appear larger to try to drive me away.
