Sandhill cranes bring the midnight sun to the interior of Alaska. Their arrival is a celebration of summer. Prehistoric feathers strut around the field demand my attention. I stare at their yoga moves with admiration. How can they stand on one leg and bury their head in feathers to take a nap? I paint the majesty of her feathers while she hunts for bugs. Summer color surrounds us. Her feathers are protected and cherished in my Ravenista’s new home in Anchorage.
