A view of Crowned Cranes arriving at the Chichele Salt Pans in the Luangwa Valley, Zambia. Each morning at 8.30am cranes arrive at this spot from all over the valley. They time their landing to perfection every morning, although the time gets a little earlier as the weather gets hotter. They leave in dribs & drabs but always arrive together. The dots in the sky are Queleas, the locusts of the bird world. There is a legend that they are the souls of dead fighter pilots.

Many thanks to everyone who took the time & trouble to vote/comment on my last upload. All comments welcome, as ever, whether good or bad.
