The Joys of Florida Living

One of the many joys of Florida living are the beautiful, very large sandhill cranes that periodically grace our front yard. I was actually able to get about 5 feet away from them before they took off. Are they not beautiful? I wish you could see the red feathers on the top of their heads. They are so brightly colored, but it's quite cloudy today and my phone doesn't take great pictures. They walk so slow and gracefully without any jerky movements. They are so fluid in motion, it's almost relaxing to watch these, the egrets and the ibis.
