another arrival

Yesterday afternoon the Sandhill Cranes arrived. Well, one. I'm not sure if it was Mister or Missus. I hope the other was just out of sight. They always come and go from the exact same field. I wonder what there is about that field. Maybe they nest by the pond just up the hill. One day last year they were out there at the same time as a few deer. Neither cared about the other's presence, but the thing is, at a quick glance I couldn't tell which was which. The cranes are about the same size as the deer and from the rear-end angle the deer looks just like the crane. I've taken many pictures and much video, but they are just that little bit too far away (so, once again, this picture was not taken by me).
