These are some great shots of the Sandhill Cranes, Valery!
Like them all but the ones in flight are exceptionally taken and the composition makes the birds look even better.

Thanks for sharing,

Thank you All!

Finally, we were lucky and we filmed the lynx (bobcat) :shock: . At the edge of the forest by the road, well, at least this way ... :cry:

You are of course welcome to Canada and in particular to Manitoba. But! But now this situation with the coronavirus has turned everything upside down in our lives, the border with the States is closed, the province is closed for visits, especially for tourists from the States, just as we cannot travel anywhere normally. We cannot even travel to the north of the province, since people living there have low immunity, especially for covid-19. It's againts the low for today... :cry: So we are trying to somehow tell people more about where they can relax inside the province, especially families with children.
Of course, I will be happy to arrange tours of our province for you, I hope it will be possible very soon. Of course, I don’t promise to meet with the lynx, we "hunted" for it for almost 2 years, but to feed the deer, see the largest swans in the world, be afraid of bears and possibly an elk and a moose - this is all quite possible. :)

They can easily camouflage themselves inside the dried high grass and other plants and you did fine getting these close shots.

Thank you for sharing, Valery.
