Sunset Landing

Friends, these Sandhill Cranes are landing in the evening on their roosting site in Crex Meadows.  Every morning they leave the roost and every evening they return about sunset.  As they set their wings for landing, they look like parachutes.  Their legs drop and they float on the wind into the sandbar.  The sunset is reflected in the clouds and the cranes in silhouette.  Hope you like, ti Tomorrow MJ
