These two look spectacular when lit up by the sun's rays peeking through the clouds.
You would see groups of three of four or many more, all seeming to 'follow the leader' with every wing-beat.
It was a day I'll never forget, that's for sure. Who wouldn't wish for a sky filled with Sandhill Cranes, and the sound of their calls echoing throughout the landscape? It was miraculous.
I'll end the Sandhill Crane images with another photoshop modified photo. I couldn't resist the sunlit reeds reflected on the water as they floated in from above.
