The part of Albuquerque I live in is still rural, so intermixed in my neighborhood are fields used for different crops. This field is on my street where my Father-in-law grows alfalfa for his horses each summer. The past few days I've been treated to this view of Sand-hill Cranes and Canadian Geese resting in this field. Today, I had some extra time so I stopped and snapped a few pics to share. :)
Here is another pic to get a better idea of how big this field is. It's pretty desolate looking in the winter, but in the summer it's such a lush green. Beautiful! When I first pulled up the cranes and geese were right up close to the fence... but they are camera shy and so had moved away from me. That's the Fire Dept. on the far side of the field.
