I think they know what they are doing, Frank...birds rarely have unintended collisions while flying.

It is a wonderful image, with just the right amount of background detail for me.
Frank L Croston.: They are very skilled at formation flying. Thanks.
What a beautiful shot, Frank - lovely capture! This week will be full of lovely memories of this place!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Elizabeth, we must return one day.
i quite like the range you got on that lens, Frank. exemplary!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Ayush, it is a good lens, very heavy though.

Give over, it's not as if we're short of space!
Frank L Croston.: But thats the bit he wanted...
There is something very pterodactyl like about these birds Frank
Frank L Croston.: They have found fossils of these birds going back 2.5 million years. You could be right, Bill. Sandhill cranes have lineage way longer than any other bird species.

Lovely!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Anne.
Their wings seem to almost overlap each other.
Frank L Croston.: It does look that way, Brian.
Whooping cranes? If so, I saw them at the ARansas Wildlife Refuge on the Gulf Coast in 1971 smile Lovely shot of them.
Frank L Croston.: Sandhill Cranes, Tom, same thing? smile Thanks.
