Sandhill Crane family going to school


Today I am featuring pictures taken by a special guest photographer, my almost 12 year old grandson, James. He took these pictures with his phone one morning this week at his middle school in Orlando, Florida.


Not sure if this is the mama or daddy bird with this cute little baby.


The whole family. Two babies!



These last two shots show where they were walking around at the school. They don't seem to be too worried about all the people they passed or the many cars in the parking lot they walked across to get to this area. Thanks for the wonderful pictures James!

Linking to Saturday's Critters, Camera Critters, and The Bird D'Pot.

He did a great job, The cranes look so fragile with those thin long legs.

Growing into those legs is so precious. So glad that your grandson is nearby, and that he has an eye for photography!

Happy Saturday,Lois.

Kudos to James. He's almost as good a photographer as his grandmother! :) Very cool shots. I love these things and see them once in awhile around here, but I've never seen a baby before! Love it!

Wow! Your grandson James did a great job of capturing this crane family all the way to school. It's the first time I've seen a young crane, such a darling! Well done James!:))

James takes after his grandmother -- he's a great photographer too. Love these! Are the parents the ones who had names in one of your previous posts? Was it Bob and ?? (Sometimes I nearly forget my own name, so I am not surprised I don't remember). anyway, I loved seeing the babies with mom and dad. Great.
