Here are a few more of the Grey Crowned Crane I captured the other week, Like the flamingos, I can’t get enough of these photos, as well as the cropping such close ups afford…
Enjoy these few that I just love… A star burst ??
I am so watching what you are up to… wow I do love that eye…
Have a great week all of you…..
She’s a beauty, for sure.
I was looking at something on television the other day and I saw a clip of Cher in a very stunning wig–and I think she resembled this beautiful Crane. Or is it better said that the Crane resembles Cher…you get the idea! Either way, it is an absolutely stunning bird! I was calling her Phyllis, but I’m thinking I might call her Cher from now on! 🙂
Debra… now that you mention it I recall seeing Cher in a wig that looks similar to the bird…. I wonder where she got her inspiration for the wig..??
And my roots are just as blonde… 🙂 Great shots, Rob!
You capture the beauty of nature perfectly, Rob xxxxx
Thanks Dianne…. was lucky with this shoot
Having seen these guys in person, makes me appreciate all the more your excellent captures.
Than k you so much…
How long did it take to train her to pose for you? Surely she doesn’t reach such beauty by herself…
The hours I spent training her Ronnie,,, too many to count…. lol… this was one of those moments you don’t believe your own luck…. I still don’t believe I got that close. …
Sono fantastiche, sembrano magiche 🙂
Your Grey Crowned Crane photo series is so amazing, love the detail and the expression you captured.
Thank you Charlie…
That third photo is a fantastic almost abstract!
Thanks … I do like that one myself…
Beautiful bird, beautiful shots! Have a great week as well. ❤
Beautiful. Love the starburst crown.
Thanks Maralee….. loved and liked your face book page….
Such a striking bird…
These images are simply stunning! 🙂
Love the starburst … but hey … she’s all smitten for you!
Thanks Frank… she does love me…
Your first shot definitely looks like a starburst…without knowing, I would never guess what it is. Your other shots are equally compelling.
These shots are fantastic, what a beauty she is.
That last shot is truly stunning. Wow!
Fantastic star burst! Thanks, Bulldog 🙂
Not often one gets the like in nature
It is an elegant bird and it has a to-die for crown. 🙂
Thank you she is a beaut
