A day for outings

Today was mostly cloudy and wet, but the animal kingdom apparently loves this kind of weather. Everywhere I looked there were birds. Some of them are just now returning for summer from warmer climes, like these two crane couples.

Others, like these geese, just take the opportunity to float on the water and enjoy the odd ray of sun that makes it through the blanket of the clouds.

These swans kindly arranged themselves to look as symmetrical as possible with the patches of snow in the background, and then smack dab in the middle of the lines left by the autumn’s harvest.

And these are… dancing?

To add some atmosphere, I filmed them as well. Just listen to those eerie crane cries that echo over the landscape!
