Sandhill Crane Early Flight
Photo By Neal Parisi

  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge

  • Brief Directions: Bosque del Apache NWR. Eighteen miles from Socorro, New Mexico.
  • Notes: Great place to see migratory birds, sandhill cranes and snow geese by the thousands.
  • Best Season: Winter
  • Description: Early morning back lighting with water vapor rising from a shallow lake bed magically worked to produce this image. The cranes would literally "pop" out of the frozen water then fly to their feeding grounds.

    Very nice set of "Arches" Stephen. Wasn't sure, but thought someone said one of the famous landmarks fell? Really enjoyed the "Double Windows" when there!

    That moose is a "spike" i.e. a very young juvenile, probably on his first year away from mom. His antler's will fill out further in the next few years.

    Very interesting post Donna and Mike on Moose/Antlers. Not sure what may have caused the change in antlers, but pretty sure the one will end up looking like one of these in a few years.
