Seven-Years Ago (22-September-2007) — Wyoming

Gone to See America 2007 Road Trip. Seventh Annual Nikonians Photography Adventure Trip. Day 1: Grand Teton National Park.

Why are nine large birds flying north past the Grand Tetons in late September? At this distance I can’t tell if they are geese, cranes, or swans. My guess is Sandhill Cranes.  Image taken with a Nikon D2xs and 200-400 mm VR lens (ISO 100, 200 mm, f/8,, 1/180 sec).
