Several photos of sandhill cranes (grus canadensis) taken at the Bosque del Apache wildlife refuge which is south of Albuquerque, near the white sands missile range in New Mexico.
I cropped the second photo, but the rest are full frame images. Not bad for the (relatively) inexpensive Nikkor 70-300 I own. I saw a lot of very expensive glass while there – dozens of photographers with lenses that stretched over a foot in length. The kind of lens you attach to the tripod, and the camera just hangs from the lens.
How do they carry those things? I should have taken a picture of some of them. 🙂
