Johnny and I were driving down the road, and I spotted two strange birds just strolling along. Cars went zipping by. Of course, I had Johnny stop and turn the car back around so that I could take some pictures.
I was concerned for the birds safety, but they kept walking slowly along. Finally, they moved over to a grassy area, close to a pond and began to eat. I waited until I got this nice pose. Wasn't it kind of them to raise up and hold still at the same time?
PS: Several bloggers have identified the birds as Sandhill Cranes.
