The sandhill cranes were out this morning, and I thought I'd try to replicate this picture, only with Elphie sitting in the doorway. Unfortunately for me, the grill is further on the patio than usual, and got in my picture attempts. But while I had the camera out, the bird closest to me flapped her wings wide. I lifted the camera to my eye to get a picture of the wingspan. The other bird jumped on her back. I snapped the picture. The second bird dismounted.
