This is a wonderful shot of the crane enjoying preening himself!:). You have timed it well. The light and shadows, colours and the composition have worked out well. Good effort!

Looks like a good nature shot posted here! Your fine and off-centre composition grants us a good look at your crane! Looks like it is putting in some effort into sorting things out. Exposure and sharpness are good. Nicely done

Looks like a Yoga position. The pose is interesting. Apparently the bird cleans itself thoroughly. The photo is excellent focused and exposed and has good depth. Details are perfectly refined, especially the feathers of the wings and on the back. I appreciate the realism of color and light. The bird stands well out from the unobtrusive background. The tight framing is adequate. The bird is well placed within the frame. The composition is balanced.

Mike,
A beautiful picture of this Sandhill Crane busy preening it's neither regions between it's legs a sunbeam lighting up the lake's surface between the legs. Beautiful composition framing and lighting taken with superb camera techniques and sharp focus.

A nicely done shot, as always. The composition is perfect! The colors are naturally good. Rusty brown feathers look awesome! The pose of the crane is great. Taken and presented by a pro!!!

I like the way this image emphasizes those beautiful feathers! Nice preening pose , well photographed allowing a good sense of the size of the Sandhill crane, nice soft blurred background really shows off this beautiful bird very well! Well presented!
