Sunday morning was a beautiful drive to church.
First, I met a doe and fawn in the road. Beautiful but not unusual. Then as I approached Mattawan, I noticed a sandhill crane along the side of the road.
When I stopped to admire it, two more cranes pranced across the road in front of the car.
The three met on the cornfield side of the road. Dad, mom, and junior were ready for breakfast.
Notice the drought stunted corn. At least it's still green. Some area farmers have given up on their corn crop and plowed it under.
I was a disappointed that I only had my little purse camera. It would have been nice to have the zoom lens I usually use on birds.
After reminding myself that this was a gift from the Lord for my pleasure and not a photo op, I relaxed and watched them feed until I needed to leave to make it to church on time.
