261/2011 heading south

261/2011 heading south, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

Loud bird shrieks made me look up, to see big flocks of cranes, getting into their flying formations, to leave Finland for the winter. The organisation of their flying routines is really amazing, as is their orienteering across continents. Nature sure is full of wonders!

The sight of migratory birds in the sky makes me quite nostalgic. Lucky birds, in a way, escaping from the cold to the warmth of southern Europe or Africa. Welcome back next spring!

    All weekend here, I kept hearing the geese. They are gathering and starting to fly south in their great Vees. Such an amazing accomplishment.
