This week, the subject for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is big, really big! Not only big but beautiful too, as Tina’s wonderful images show, here at BIG Can Be Beautiful Too!. It’s a strange thing but despite my life-long fear of birds, I’ve discovered over the years that I am far less afraid of large birds than I am smaller ones. This enabled me to get surprisingly close to a pair of sandhill cranes in Wausau, Wisconsin recently. They didn’t seem to be afraid of me either so things worked out very nicely.
