Roosting Crowned Cranes

08th May 2012
As I was returning to camp after an afternoon drive to check out the condition of the roads through some of the gullies, I noticed so Crowned Cranes crossing the sunset in the distance. Hoping to catch them in flight as they moved across the open sky, I moved to an open are and found them landing in a dead Leadwood tree in the distance. As the sun dropped lower and the colours intensified, I took a few shots of the unmistakable shape of two Crowned Cranes in silhouette.

PS - I passed my Walking Guide Exams!
