Black shapes form sharp cutouts against the sky in Israel's Hula Valley. As you look closer, you notice that they're cranes, regular visitors to this part of the world: every year, cranes migrate to the valley, which functions as a reserve for a variety of species.

As the birds separate the plush ground from the majestic mountains behind them, they remind us what it's like to look up at the sky and be amazed.
