A few days ago I spotted three cranes in a field along the road. I was quite disappointed by the fact that I didn't have my camera with me. Yesterday I drove by again, and the birds were there, in exactly the same spot. This time I had the camera, and with the long lens on it. I also had time to stop and get a few shots.
They say two is company and three is a crowd, and after a while two of them flew off.
