OK we don't know who comes up with the names for groups of animals. Apparently a group of Sandhill Cranes (Grus canadensis) can be known as a "construction," "sedge," "dance," "siege" or "swoop" of cranes. Clever, huh? Here we fit 5 cranes into the frame, and were happy that 4 were in focus. The slacker at the far right was a little behind the group, taking it out of the zone of focus.<br />
