The Sandhills cranes are back in central Nebraska. I drove around a bit today to try to get an idea of just how long a lens I'm going to need to rent when I come down here to photograph them for real later this month. They're still rather timid out the fields, so I didn't get many good shots during the day. The sunsets around here, though, are always spectacular. :) I can't decide which shot I like more: #1 or #2. My sister says #1's the winner. What do you think? Click to enlarge.
