Colorado - Papaleo New Post- Kearney Nebraska Cranes.

"X Shot" information.
Camera - Canon 5D Mark II

Shutter Speed - 1/13 sec.

Lens - 300/2.8

I had covered the cranes in Monte Vista Colorado for many years so this year something new was needed. The cranes in Nebraska always interested me, so Dennis and I headed there. Dennis is the NREAL photographer and also worked with me at the former Rocky Mountain News. We found way more birds but they were over a very large area. Morning and evenings were fruitful, with nice light and sky. Shooting during the day was harder. With so many huge corn fields for the cranes to choice from, first you had to find them, and most of the time the where located in the middle of a square mile field. Even with our 500 mm lens and converters, we couldn't get many situations for up close shots. So when you found one, we shot, using my car as a blind.
