The weather has been horrible for weeks. I still ventured out for a prolonged walk the other day, bringing the cameras, and I could hear the cranes make a racket somewhere. I followed their sound and found them at last, but alas! they would not have me near them. They did what birds do when I come to take their photo (wouldn't have done so with Sir Ray or Airic or so! I am sure!) ... so there :roll: ... just these! 1. 2. 3. They were there by the hundreds, but all my attempts to get closer by means of using my telezoom (and subsequent cropping) have come out in such a bad quality that only a tiny size can make them presentable AT ALL: 4. 5. 6. And sure enough, what did this group do (that I detected when I was already almost back to where I had left the car)? 7. The light was just too poor, too!
