Friendly SHC [Explored #451, August 23, 2011]

I remember some of my fellow photographers from a few years ago getting so excited about going to Bosque del Apache for Sandhill Cranes. From their images, it seemed that the cranes were far away in the fields. Here I was getting into my car at the Orlando Wetlands parking lot, and a full-grown SHC - about 4 ft tall - came right up to me, as if he wanted to get in the car. With my camera in hand, I turned around and gave him a few closeup portraits. This is one of them.
