Last weekend, I was in Wisconsin for the opening of this year's Birds in Art exhibition at the Woodson Art Museum.
A nice sunset along the placid Wisconsin River in central Wisconsin.
After the opening weekend festivities at the museum, I, an artist friend and a photographer friend of ours, headed to the International Crane Foundation near Baraboo, Wisconsin.
The Foundation has a captive breeding program housing over 100 cranes. They also have a number of cranes on public view, including these beautiful Hooded Cranes.
A graceful pair of Whoopers were the spotlight birds and we spent a good hour or more, enjoying their movements, almost like ballet dancers!
The Sandhill Crane, with its brilliant slash of red, posed nicely for our cameras. The International Crane Foundation is well worth an afternoon, if in the central Wisconsin area!
