The Crane at the Lake

One of our favorite weekend bonding is to go to the lake here in Chinhae where you see lots of birds, flowers and fish. Our daughter is addicted in feeding the fish so we always save and bring some bread whenever we go there. Last Saturday, a crane was displaying her beauty to us.
The distance was a little bit far but I took some shots anyway.
There's two of them here. The old Korean woman is watching them catch some fish.
Then we moved around on the other side of the lake just to see them close.

This is the closest we can get. It was low tide so its far from the side of the lake.

Must be a lovely place spending time with the family. Back to nature at its best. Good shots of the place, though.

The crane is a beautiful bird. I saw them for the first time in spring this year. In Sweden we have a lake, Hornborgasjön, where the cranes takes a good rest on their way further north. Barley is spread in the fields in the evening and when the cranes return in the morning breakfast i served. This year the cranes set an record. 18 500 cranes where gathered at the same time on March 31th. Many people are coming to see the cranes dance. It's magnificent sight!

a lovely set of shots

The cranes look lovely. No use unnecessarily disturbing them in their natural habitat. They bring a sense of peace and tranquility in the lake as people who watch them feel at one with mother nature. Thanks for the post and photos but where are Rylie and EJ? God bless you always.

Carolyn Ford said...
