Caption: Russian president Vladimir Putin (right) preparing to take off on a 'Flight of Hope'. This was part of a project to guide captive-bred Siberian cranes (Grus leucogeranus) along their migration route. Putin took part in two flights helping to guide the cranes. The cranes follow because they have been imprinted with a person in a white jumpsuit as being their parent. Other pilots and researchers took over for the rest of the tip to Central Asia. Photographed in the Jamelo-Nenetsky region of Russia.
