These are two of the approximately 85 wild whooping cranes living around Necedah Wildlife Refuge in Wisconsin. They don't realize that the possibility of extinction is very real for their species. They don’t know there are only about 89 other pair of whooping cranes, split between two colonies.
What they knew this day was the weather was comfortable, the fishing was fine, and life was good.
They don’ know that they are living on the edge.
