There's a pair of whooping cranes in the park that tend to hang out over in the middle of the park. Linda, Boomer and I went for a walk and as we got back to our rig, I noticed that the "klackers" (my name for the cranes based on the noise they make)were hanging out near our rig. I went out with the camera to get some pics and followed them as they walked over between a couple of rigs. It was then that the pair of cranes started going crazy. At first I couldn't figure out what was agitating them but then it hit me. They were standing in front of a Class C with a really shiny chrome bumper and they could see their reflections in it. Thought they had some competition and it took them quite a while to figure out that they were just looking at themselves. It was pretty comical (and noisy)!
