It's another day with a heat index over 100. If I had to be outside, I think I'd follow the example of this sand hill crane and take a quick dip!

How do you dry off? Easy - just flap your wings!

It was a little alarming watching the crane sit down in the water, especially since I was convinced there was some sort of avian "hydrophobie" going around. But watching them (yes "them" - it's hard to get 2 large birds in an action shot) frolic was good fun.

(also, you might notice that the first picture above was taken where I last saw the heron. he's flown the coop for now)
