It's a sin to kill a crane

You know what you get when you don't hunt large animals? You get large animals foraging in your back yard.

I finished pruning a flowering bush raised garden and turned around, and standing about 6ft away was a Florida sandhill crane (Grus canadensis pratensis) feeding on scattered bird seed below my bird feeder. After retrieving my camera from inside the home, the bird had moved to my neighbor's bird feeder where I got these shots from within 8ft of the apparently unconcerned beast.
