A Crane Taking Flight...Ilion Gorge April 2009

Spring Begins Again

I've post photos before on here, we're still going on our rides...we were bored as all get out the other day when it was pouring, and as we drove through the Ilion Gorge, we spotted this Crane all poofed out sitting on a limb, staring deeply into Steels Creek in the Ilion Gorge. They are birds that spook easily, and the moment he spotted me, he was outta there, however, I did manage to snap these...they are not the best, but you can get an idea as to the size of this bird by his wing span.
The other photo is my prize posession...my Bumble bee on a flower. Taken at Cheppatchit Pond. I love that Macro button on my Nikon.
