Sandhill Cranes in Flight

These are fast moving noisy birds but they are beautiful to see in flight. They hit a rest stop in northern Indiana during the fall on their way from Wisconsin to Florida. I rented a huge 600mm lens--the size of a small telescope and shot some pictures from about 1/4 mile away. Got this nice tight shot from the observing area at the Jasper-Pulaski State Park in Indiana.
