Sandhill Cranes

I went on a three day photo tour of the Sandhill Cranes in central Nebraska.  I have lived in Nebraska for over thirty years and have heard about the migration of the cranes, but always was a bit sceptical about the reports that over 500,000 cranes stay in a 30 mile area for a few weeks during their migration.  Not any more after watching the cranes fly into the river to nest overnight and fly out in the morning.  Words can't describe the experience, but maybe this photo does.
