You Keep Watch While I Fix My Feathers by 

Doing a golf course shoot in Michigan, I was lucky to come across two sand hill cranes hanging out among the trees for some reason. Thanks for the bird ID, Jeff! Shot with Canon 7D.

Most of the time I have two jobs – acting and photography. I’d be hard pressed to say which I prefer, as both are pretty wonderful ways to earn a living (at least when you have work!). I’ve appeared on stage, in films, on TV and in commercials. Although I work as a photojournalist and a studio/location photographer, most of the photos here are the fun stuff – travel, wildlife, nature, people and art imagery. I’d love to know what you think. Enjoy!

    A wonderful shot, Jan! And how interesting that their coloring matches the reds and grays of the background!

  • Thank you – that really caught my eye, too, especially when I pulled the shots up on the screen. Nature is so coordinated!
