Crane Sunset

tags: , , , ,

Dave, Elizabeth and I were in Nebraska yesterday, watching migrating Sandhill cranes, Grus canadensis, over the Platte River in the evening. This is one of the images that Dave took of the sunset that we saw while we were there. (I also have a bunch of images of the Platte River and its Sandhill cranes to share with you).

    I grew up near the Platte River. My Dad would take me every year to see the cranes. Thank you for bringing back some very fond memories.
