Weekly Photo Challenge: Delicate


I’ll stick with the Sandhill Cranes for todays challenge.  I think they fit nicely for two reasons.  They seem to have these large bodies and wings which have to be supported by very delicate, thin legs.  The second reason is the incredibly delicate coordination they exhibit while flying and especially while landing.  This photo shows two cranes landing in amazing ballet synchronization.

  8. Delicate…I’ll say it gives a new meaning to the concept of NOT tripping over each other lol

    • AAU- it is amazing that they don’t trip each other up – although you do occasionally see them take a quick hop to avoid contact…. :-)
