[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Sandhill Crane (Grus canadensis) is a species of large crane of North America and extreme northeastern Siberia. The common name of this bird references habitat like that at the Platte River, on the edge of Nebraska's Sandhills in the American Midwest. This is the most important stopover area for the nominotypical subspecies, the Lesser Sandhill Crane (Grus canadensis canadensis), with up to 450,000 of these birds migrating through annually.

Hi Eleu.

Pale tones add a subtle mood to these cranes as the screech across the sky. I may have cropped more from top and bottome..perhaps.

stv ;o))

Ciao Eleu

An elegant simplicity bordering on Zen Japanese style with just the 2 cranes against the sky. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the blue & yellow tipped wings with the pastel colors working well. Perhaps a tiny bit more sharpness around the birds & a tighter crop, but that's really nitpicking. Tfs!
