Description

I have photographed birds at Bosque del Apache several times. My mid-day strategy is to scout the fields to find out where the Sandhill Cranes are coming in to eat. I position myself upwind from the birds to capture their landing and takeoff. This is one of my favorite sandhill crane images, capturing seven birds, one stacked on top of the other, coming in for a landing.
