The danger had passed and the male Sandhill Crane relaxes with a big yawn now that the winged hunter has flown to another part of the wetland.

The male Sandhill Crane is always on alert for danger in the woods. Here he is watching and listening as he hears something flying nearby in the treetops. A Red-tailed Hawk happened to fly nearby alerting the squirrels and other forest creatures to the presence of the winged hunter.

The breeze on that morning was the outer flow from a hurricane impacting New York City and the Northeastern seaboard. We did not get any rain from the system but we did get the clouds and winds from the massive storm.
As we walked along the shoreline of Higgins Lake, I found many idyllic scenes of relaxing vacation moments. I loved the color scheme of the three Adirondack chairs and green garden swing all set up to view beautiful Higgins Lake. I wanted to go sit on those swings so badly, but could only look from the road and take a remembrance photo.
