Beau portrait. From the thumbnail I thought you had posted a cannon, that rock or tree in the background! :-)

I had some old cranes as my teachers way back when in school. Oh, wait! Those were old crones.

I think I like old cranes better! ;-)

Looks like it's watching you carefully!

I think i"ve seen a crane in the creek near my home. Amazing that they can take the cold here. Nice shot.

Wearing a circle of crains, these birds are always special to me.
