Reader’s wildlife video

March 8, 2021 • 8:00 am

After nearly a year’s hiatus, we have a new video from Tara Tanaka, and it’s a lovey one: gorgeous shots of Sandhill Cranes (Antigone canadensis) accompanied by appropriate music. (Tara’s Vimeo page is here, and her Flickr page is here.)

The notes on Tara’s public Facebook post say this:

It’s been a year since I created a new wildlife video, but this one has been floating around in my head and my heart since 2014, and sharing these scenes and the emotion behind them was one of the top things on my bucket list. Be sure not to turn it off too early – there are two main parts to this video. I hope you enjoy it!

Be sure to enlarge the video and turn the sound on! The first thirty seconds is the intro.

  1. Great color throughout. I enjoy seeing their skinny bodies floating and buffeting when they are landing. They approach stall speed and slip a bit, but it’s all under control.

  2. This video embodies grace, beauty, color, musical peace. It made my day. Thank you Ms. Tanaka for your inspiring work.

  3. I wanted to thank everyone for taking the time to post such kind comments! I do this to share it with others, and it makes me really happy to know how much you enjoyed it. I am inspired that much more to make others I have in mind from those same unforgettable Bosque trips!

  4. My husband has taken some gorgeous bird photos here on Sanibel Island. He’s too shy to send them in (he’s only just started photographing, although we’ve been birding for years). But he says I can do so. How do I submit photos to you? And how do I add captions, if the photos are all attachments to one email? (Or should I do something different?)

    1. Suzanna – look at the About JerryCoyne link at the bottom and you should be able to find his email.

      Hallelujah, I got my final “e” back🙀
