Pfoto Friday



WINTERING


I can't lay claim to this photo, my friend Julia took it last weekend down in the wildlife refuges along the Rio Grande Valley. It's a Sandhill crane feather caught in some fourwing saltbush, but she promised to share - so I'm sharing this with everyone. It seems to me to capture it all - the tenuous hold on existence that cranes have had throughout our contemporary history, the icy cold weather, the grey and brown world of this winter, so unlike the usual blue skies of previous NM winters.

What Lisa said. All I've got are juncos and one house finch.

I sould love to have the opportunity to photograph sandhill cranes. None out here on Long Island. However, we have the best variety of ducks!

Thanks for sharing this shot!
