The background lighting adds another dimension to this beautiful image. Such a handsome bird and a great capture of him too.

Mid-afternoon sun, Heather! It put a bit of a halo around the crane.

Jane LeBlanc

Great capture, Harold.

Thank you, Jane! Beautiful bird aren't they?

Nice closeup Harold, beautiful bird. I like how his coloration blends in with the field.

One of those birds that are hard to spot until they move! Thanks!

This male Sandhill Crane was strutting back and forth in a meadow near Masset, Haida Gwaii very much in charge of guarding his mate.
