Beyond the BackyardOrlando Wetlands Park

Head Shot

I photographed this Sandhill Crane at Orlando Wetlands last weekend.  He just wouldn’t get off the trail, which made it really easy to photograph him.  The grasses behind him were nicely out-of-focus (well, mostly), and they contrasted beautifully with his bright red head.  I like how the grasses give the background a feeling of motion, reminding me of the nice breezes that day.  I’ll have to check backnext spring to see if this pair is equally cooperative when they have babies!
