The other morning we watched as a deer stalked "our" cranes--the ones that return to nest here each year. As you can see, this year's two colts both survived. Anyway, the deer followed these cranes around for a bit, walking up a dirt mound where one had settled, then following it down off the mound as it rejoined the group.
The deer just seemed to be curious about these large birds. Or maybe he/she just wanted to say hi.(Click on photo for a larger picture.)
