Common Crane

I took it from a distance because they are so 'shy' and the image turned out quite 'noisy' ... but I was SOOOOO happy to see them already as the season for spotting them starts from september on !

Chaque année, plus ou moins à la même date, je passer et repasser au dessus de mon village des escadrons d'oies ou de grues disposés en forme de V. Les oies se posent parfois la nuit tombante dans les prairies à côté de chez moi. L'année passée, en partant au travail, j'en ai photographié. Malheureusement mais les photos étaient floues. Amicalement Patrick
