What a fantastic picture !
Thank you Susan! Seeing what I presume to be mom and chick was a real treat.
Thank you Lynda, so nice hearing from you again!
Wow, that's a picture you won't get very often. Great capture. Looks like they posed for you!!
Hi Donna. As is often the case, I was there at the right time with a camera in hand. The chick was somewhat shy, as I watched them, it would often hover around the bushes, just a bit out of sight.
He's sooo cute. Didn't know they were called colts.
Hi Sandie. I didn't know they were called colts either. From what I can find out, they are called both, chick and/or colt.
Ah so pretty in the spotlight.
Hi Karen. The cranes are very pretty and I think "majestic". I was fortunate to catch them as the sun was setting.
Simply awesome!!! Mama and baby what a picture. I learned something did not know they were called Colts. Hmmm that is different. What happened to chick?
Hi Tammy. Like you, I had no idea about "colts" either. From my reading, calling them chicks and/or colts seems to be appropriate. Maybe when they are just hatching, calling them "chicks" would be more correct.
This is absolutely fantastic. A marvelous photo.
Thank you George, appreciated! I think the truth is that I was very lucky to get this shot.
