Gorgeous shots of the Sandhill Cranes in the sunset Nina! I love those eerie, prehistoric calls as they fly overhead.

Nice shots of the group in the field too. It looks like a super observation area. How close can you get to those beauties there?

The story of the sandhill cranes is so inspiring. It reminds us of the resiliency of nature and the kind-heartedness of man.
