Three Sand Cranes marching in lock-step, as in ROTC training...



When these things squawk it sounds prehistoric, much like GBH's.
I desaturated the background somewhat to bring the cranes out.

Beautiful colors and the lock-step is great! 

Happy Friday everyone, here's an off-the-hip shot of an osprey fly-by - (and btw, I recently learned that the name comes from the Latin word ossifraga that means "bone breaker"):
