Birds and 'boo

Our resident pair of sandhill cranes spent most of the day yesterday in our front yard.  I went a bit crazy with the camera, especially when the cranes hung around two large stand of bamboo.

Below are two birds by bamboo - can you find them both?

A sandhill crane's neck is just about the same thickness as a cane of Giant Timber (Bambusa oldhamii) bamboo.  In the photo below, the crane's neck is hidden behind the 'boo.

A good time to do a bit of feather preening is when you're in-between the lake and a thick clump of bamboo.

Sandhill cranes are beautiful birds and bamboo is a beautiful plant. But when you put the two together - birds & 'boo - ah, what a picture it becomes!
