Someone once told me pictures of threes work better than two or fours...this fine shot seems to support that theory.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much, Ray - I've been told as well... It does seem to work!

In the mid and earlier 20th Century, three ducks were popular here as wall decorations. Your more than elegant Cranes made me remember them
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Really? Isn't that something! Thank you, Lisl - and I hope it's a happy memory! smile
I like what you have done here E.


Strewth that song takes me back I sem to remember Marty Robbins doing it
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Bill! So glad you like it!
I think Johnny Cash's version is what's in my memory!

I wish I could see sandhills again. The song is so reminiscent of long ago....

Lovely processing - this is wonderful!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Anne! I'm glad you like it! I think you would really enjoy a visit to the Bosque del Apache... just the sound of the cranes, gathered in the hundreds, is so wonderful!
I don't think I've ever seen a Crane, this is well taken.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: No? They're wonderful... and LOUD! smile
I don't think I've ever seen a Crane, this is well taken.
Head em up move em out, perhaps seeking better climes.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile They spend their winters here at the Bosque... and move north for the summer!
I always enjoy your monochromes... also like the border...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Larry! Much appreciated!
Great shot, Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much, Tom!
I like it, you stand out like shadows on gray, storks?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Claudio - I'm so glad you like it!
These are Sand Hill Cranes - amazing creatures! They'll have a wingspan of over 7 feet, and have the longest fossil history of any bird not extinct.
