i was sitting on the pier for a long time yesterday afternoon, watching and shooting the white cranes fishing. this one chose this roof for his viewpoint, others sat in the crown of trees - the white spots on the red wall (part of the restaurant on the pier) are a swarm of white bugs, the larger white spots on the water are more white egrets, white cranes..... sitting in dead trees immersed in water

texture by Ghostbones, thank you!

Explore #9 thank you all so very much (((: Explore 01-31-09


(those white areas reflecting the light across the lake are actually large plastic covered berry-growing green houses) - that's where (maybe) your strawberries come from ((((:

Lago de Chapala during the rainy season - already now puddles and little "lakes" are developing above the lake's shores - by the end of the season, mid Sept, the lake will hopefully have gained meters in width and cm in height again - Mexico.

"It was a white crane,


It was a helpless thing


Upon a red stain


With an arrow in its wing


And it called and cried


And it called and cried so"

.... and finally The Catch! - TOO BIG TO SWALLOW !!! ???


i watched him/her for a long time juggling this catch into the swallow position... until he/she got fed-up with me and flew a few hundred meters up the shore for some privacy ((:

i think in the end he/she did manage to swallow it..... because later i saw a bird with a fat neck ((((;


Thank you SkeletalMess for the texture!!!

taken this morning:


Mount Garcia with his "morning wrinkles" (((;

- view with fisherman and white crane across the lake to my favorite mountain!


in the afternoon light his "wrinkles" with be totally distinct !!!

but not getting anywhere..... a little embarressed.... seeming to say: "i want to see you try this"

(((; or maybe: "LOOK MA NO HANDS' ((((;

it was so windy yesterday these big white cranes were just hanging in the wind flapping their wings laboriously but not getting anywhere - but boy when they turned and flew with-the-wind their speed was dangerously fast - (looks like i had a hard time myself.... holding my camera still, the shot unfortunately did not turn out very clear, had to work at it quite a bit).

Monte Vista NWR, Monte Vista, Colorado - Taken at the 2013 Sandhill Crane Festival, this was the only bird in thousands displaying the "Leucistic" (white) coloring. I'm especially happy that I was able to get this shot because it was taken at incredible distance. Even with adding dual extenders to my telephoto lens, this view is only 1/6 of my viewfinder. If I did the math correctly, that is a 35mm focal length nearing 4000mm.,_LEUCISTI...

While taking a shot of the flying crane, this little dog was barking at me. I couldn't leave him out of the photo!







18 km across to the south shore!


Lake Chapala (Spanish: Lago de Chapala) is Mexico's largest freshwater lake. It is located at 20°20′N 103°00′W, 45 km southeast of Guadalajara, Jalisco, and is situated on the border between the states of Jalisco and Michoacán, at 1,524 metres above sea level. Its approximate dimensions are 80 km from east to west and 18 km from north to south, and it covers a total of some 1,100 km². It is a shallow lake, with a depth of 4.5 metres (a maximum of 10.5). The largest island in the lake is Isla de los Alacranes.

I would like to celebrate Chinese New Year with a portrait of my favorite bird, the crane!

Oh, Happy Fence Friday! :)

How better to spend an afternoon than with friends toasting to the joys of life? This was taken at a local winery in Livermore, White Crane, one of my favorites. This glass is filled with a Petite Syrah Port. If you haven't tried some, I'd highly recommend it.


I had a wonderful time and what I liked most (aside from the port) was the shadow and reflections. We had the chance to sit outside in the warm sun. If you're ever in town, let me know and we can enjoy a taste or two...

Text Appearing Before Image:

with each note the bill is jerked furtherforward, while the wings are lifted and the piuion-quills droopedexposing their blackness, till, by the end of the song, the birdis calling with bill and neck erect, in the typical sarus position. This is a very wary bird, and when obtained is not goodeating, while it is not a devourer of crops, so that there is noparticular reason to trouble about shooting it. Its breeding-home is in Central Asia, Siberia, and Mongolia, and there itsfeeding habits are probably different from its vegetarianpractices in India, for in captivity in England it readily eatsfish, and will wait to catch them like a heron, and devour youngducks; it also digs for earth-worms. Eggs taken in the wild state are still a desideratum, butseveral pairs have laid and sat in captivity, though up to dateno young have ever been hatched. One pair in the LondonZoo nests in this futile way year after year; the eggs are twoin number, and olive-brown in colour with dark brown blotches.

ANTHROPOIDES VIRGO. DEMOISELLE CEANE 129 Mr. R. Coso;rave, in some interesting notes on the cranes atLilford Hall in the AviciUtural Magazine, says that the whitecranes kept there are miserable in heat and rejoice in cold;and, though this is not the case with the Zoo birds, whichalways behave and look much the same, it is quite possible that,as he suggests, the climate accounts for the infertility of theeggs so far produced in England. Demoiselle Crane. Aiithropoides virgo. Karkarra, Hindustani. The demoiselle crane is the smallest species found, not onlyin India, but anywhere ; it is not quite a yard long, and sowould be more likely to be mistaken for the grey heron thanis the common crane, were it not that the adults have theirgrey plumage strikingly set off by the black face, neck andbreast, and long white plumes drooping from the cheeks;while in the case of the young, which have only black onthe neck, and but a little there, and the kiss-curls onlyjust indicated, the shorter beak
