Recently we went for a nice summer stroll at the Reifel Bird Sanctuary on Westham Island. Upon our stroll we started to see warning signs letting us know that there were cranes in the area... well lucky us, we got a close encounter. Here is the crane family with their little (well, pretty big, if you ask me) baby. All I could think as I snapped the pics were random clips of that darn tv show "When Animals Attack" (I think that was what it was called?). I was quite a distance away (hooray for zoom lenses), so there was no threat of losing an eye... nevertheless, they still kind of freaked me out.
