First we played peek-eye through the fence.

Then his friend blinked - seemed all the cranes we saw that day blinked for me. I swear I see the world in their eyes.

  10. Interesting shots, wonderful details.

    I feel bad for the second one because it's eye is very cloudy and I'm sure it affects it's vision.

  13. I love that you caught the second lens eye blink. My parrot has a much clearer looking lens than the crane does. I wonder what the bird sees like that.
