Nurturing the Young
Photo and caption by Carolina Karim
Each Spring I look forward to seeing the new sand hill crane chicks around where I live. This shot was particularly sweet, watching this mother focused on caring for her two young chicks. Paused in time is a look into the "mother nature" tendencies that all Mothers seem to posses. as this mother was intently focused on each little chick opening their mouth to take what food she gave, the other chick would stand, watch, and wait for their turn. What a beautiful moment!
