The photos below were taken by Taylor Durham.  We were in our golf cart riding around the Blue Heron Wetlands when this family of Sandhill Cranes appeared.  As you can see in the last photo, when we got too close, one of the adults (I’m assuming Daddy) made sure he was between the golf cart and his family.

It was amazing to be able to follow these beautiful birds.  The adults had these long elegant strides with their long legs.  The babies on the the other hand with their short legs were walking in triple time trying to keep up with Mommy and Daddy.
