Weekly Photo Challenge:Up

Friends, look up in Crex Meadows early in the spring or late in the fall and you will see Greater Sandhill Cranes gathering in flocks.  In the sunset sky they land on their roost, and in the spring they land and dance on the brown reeds and sedges.  In the early summer they pair off and go to their nesting site to raise their young.  This time of year, they soar down to land in groups, and when landing, the dancing begins.  They pop up and down like popcorn, trying to find the right place to land without disturbing the residents who are already in the spot.  til Tomorrow MJ
