Two days ago my daughter called to me "Mommy, come quickly!" you won't believe it! To our great delight we witnessed the largest group of migrating cranes flying overhead. Not one group exactly but three, one after the other, each one larger than groups of cranes we generally see every Spring and Fall as they make their journey to and from Europe. I have shared our little observation of migrating cranes many times, and honestly, I still get just as excited as I did the first time I saw these magnificent creature migrating over Jerusalem when we lived there. And when you realize how large these birds actually are, it is even more amazing.......
Hello, cranes, thanks for stopping by our neighborhood, we love you!
The previous photos were enlarged to show you what the birds really look like, though actually they were really quite far away, namely not overhead, but over the somewhat distant canyon. Mind you, the camera always seems to make things like this less dramatic for some reason, so this photo doesn't actually depict our experience, which I think really must be witnessed first hand!
That is it for my little seasonal slice of life, happy spring!
