Preening Crane

Columbus Zoo, OH. This crested crane would NOT stop preening and give me a good shot, so I finally said "Fine!" and took it anyway. Actually, I really like this... I love the lighting and the texture of the feathers appeals to me. I like that you have to really LOOK to see its face under its feather crown. Sometimes you just like a shot because it's... cool! I eventually did get a good shot of him if you want to look in my photostream.
