Pacific Flyway, The Delta, California

Here are six photos that I took of the returning Sandhill Cranes to the Pacific Flyway. The Pacific Flyway includes the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta in California. The cranes, geese, and other wild birds like to feed in the cornfields after harvest time. The Sandhill Cranes to my eyes certainly seem to enjoy themselves along the Pacific Flyway.

I added five more photos: a great blue heron, a family of cranes with their juvenile cranes and a view of Mount Diablo, California.

Here are four pictures I took this evening as the Blue Moon or the Green Corn Moon was rising in the southeast as the sun was setting in the west. I use a Nikon D600 FX at times with a Nikon 70 to 300 mm telephoto lens and other times with a Nikon 80 to 400 mm telephoto lens. Next Blue Moon will be July 2015.
