Taken (hand held) this morning as the Sandhill Crane flew over my head.
Tweaked in Smart Photo Editor, used the HDR filter.

    A first for me! while breaking in my new Canon EF 70mm-300mm lens.
I was taking photos of the ducklings and mama duck across the street from my condo. Then over my head flew two Sandhill Cranes...yes! What an experience! 8o)

Thank you all for your kind comments...I was more than thrilled that I was 'safe' when I looked up!
I never trust flying birds... 8o)

Also this was a hand held; so will make note under the photo.
