2013 Spring Crane Migration


Recommended Posts

Today was the perfect day for the cranes to start heading up north.

A really strong wind was blowing from southeast, grey skies.

The cranes took advantage of that and were traveling with tremendously high speed. :)



Here they come.

Flying by.

I also now have a near "perfect" tool set for these kinds of shots, namely:


Sony NEX-7 + Novoflex NEX/LER Adapter + Leica Vario-Elmar-R 1:4/80-200 or Leitz APO-Telyt-R 1:3.4/180


The precision made Novoflex adapter is accurate enough so that the lenses have a hard stop at infinity.

As the cranes are flying very high, that's an excellent focus point stop to have. :D

Nice to see that spring is around the corner, although we have winter weather here Sweden. I like the last one best, you get a feeling for the size of the spring migration.





Thank you. The scale of the migration is enormous.

This goes on for several hours each day for the next month or so.
