Lil’ Bit Goes For A Walk

“Too Tall Papa” took his son “Lil’ Bit” for a walk.

“Lil’ Bit” was excited because now he would have a chance to learn to use those ungainly legs of his.

“Lil’ Bit” bravely tried to mimic his Papa’s every move.  He didn’t know left from right but what’s so difficult about putting one foot in front of the other?

He stumbled a few times.  Turns out manipulating those appendages is easier said than done! 😦

But finally, if you discount the occasional wobble, “Lil’ Bit” managed to shuffle & strut just like a grown-up!

  1. Thoroughly delightful. You really caught the feel of growing up, I love that Lil Bit is being taught by dad. Beautiful creatures your cranes are.


  2. Oh, now I’m thinking back to the little sandhill crane I saw coyotes get last spring in Yellowstone…he didn’t look so cute from far away!
