- Description: Volo Bog State Natural Area is quite close to my home. It is, I believe, Illinois' only bog. It is home to several Endangered Species. In the spring Sandhill Cranes nest here, and I was fortunate to have captured this family group last May. There are several trails and I captured this image at an observation platform recently erected. I was so glad I had my long lens mounted that Morning!
- Gear: Nikon D200, Sigma 70-200 2.8
