Foraging at sunrise
Anglers know that the best time to catch fish is at sunrise; so apparently do the cranes. I noticed that their foraging activity and their catches increased as sunrise approached. It was beautiful when the sun started to hit the Setsuri River and the tops of the ripples formed by the cranes activities started to light up, surrounding each crane in this family by rings of light.
