Between Moon and Sun

Sandhill Cranes returning to their roost at sunset

These cranes migrate through central Nebraska (and other locations) every year, spending the night on sandbars in the Platte River and venturing away from the river during the day. This was captured as daylight was fading.

very well done.

Thank you!

Nice catch ;)

Thanks. Shot hundreds of frames during the twilight hour as the cranes passed over the house I was staying at.

Gorgeous photo. Well captured!

Thanks very much! This was one of those rare moments we get as photographers when the light and setting are just right to capture the feeling along with the image.
