Cranes Flying At Dawn

From January 3-7, 2008, Sarah and I were in New Mexico, with our time focused on Bosque del Apache Wildlife Refuge. The highlight of our days there was dawn on the 4th. True to form, the water fowl who had spent the night at a particular area viewable from what's called the "Flight Deck" took off together— a truly spectacular event. This photo shows a small group of sandhill cranes (probably a family group) in the light of dawn.
