I REALLY focus on wildflowers.  Driving through Seney National Wildlife Area, I spotted a patch of swamp candles.  This would be my first chance to photograph them digitally.  I turned around and pulled off.  Only after getting out of the car did I see the sandhill cranes.  You tell me, which is the more obvious?  The cranes or the flowers.  I got my pictures even though one of the cranes didn't give an inch.  I worked within about five feet of it.  Whatever they were finding to eat there in the mud must have been tasty.
