Just back from the Crane Festival in Monte Vista. Amazing to see these stunning creatures take flight in their thousands. Here are a few of my images. The third is being featured on the Monte Vista Crane Festival site and Visit San Luis Valley, Colorado site.

The one in a million, money shot. Two Cranes forming a heart, in flight.

I came across a video that shows what it's like to see and hear hundreds upon hundreds of Sandhills. At the :45 second mark is when it gets most impressive.
