I was walking out into a marsh area this particular day, looking for Hawks and Eagles so my eyes were to the sky. I walked out as far as I could before it came to a small stream. As I walked up to the edge a group of Sandhill Cranes took flight out of the tall Reeds, flying into the dark and stormy sky. This caught me off guard as I've never seen them in this location before, so I didn't have much time to react and take photos, but a few turned out well!
