Sandhill Cranes # 32


This is one of a series of five sandhill crane drawings drawn after watching them on April 17 when were were in Yellowstone. Here the cranes are performing their mating dance, part of the pair bonding process.

Drawn from far off photos we took in Yellowstone. Pelikan fountain pen on Strathmore 140# cold press paper.

We have a number of these around here and I happened to witness the beginning of the dance just last week—you've definitely captured their movements.
