Crex Meadows Wildlife Area, part 3

Part three of my visit to the Crex Meadows Wildlife area. Besides all the exciting animal encounters (see part 1 and 2) I also found many interesting landscape scenes and opportunities for some abstract images. The first one is a "multiple exposure" of some colorful willow branches. They looked like they were on fire! And for the ending of a beautiful day a perfect reflection of two trees in one of the many lakes. Enjoy, Susanne

Crex Meadows Wildlife Area, part 2

Part two of our visit to the Crex Meadows Wildlife area - we saw and heard several Sandhill Cranes, the one on the last picture was alone and wouldn't stop squaking... maybe he/she was looking for a companion. But the highlight were the beavers, especially the one we saw right at sunset that turned the whole scenery into a golden light, even the water. This guy was busy munching away on a cattail root. Once or twice he got upset and splashed his tail but I guess his hunger was greater and our presence less annoying. 
Enjoy! Susanne
