One of the most spectacular birding sights in Japan in winter is to witness the thousands of Hooded and White-naped Cranes flying over the fields at Arasaki, Izumi city, Kagoshima prefecture.

Here a small flock, probably family unit, of White-naped Crane created a memorable full-frame composition with the rising sun, low mountains and whisp of cloud.
