Default Crane flys away

This Crane was not impressed when I decided to take his photo and decided to simply fly away.

I find it interesting how much effort this large bird (about 4' tall) seems to put into taking off without running to get up to flight speed.

Single shot mode, K10D

Great shots Tom, good thing he's got double jointed knees or he'd fall on his face!

Amazing pictures, Tom. That's quite a wing-span on that bird and I love the lighting, too. It amazes me that large birds like this can fly at all!

Lovely lighting, as Harriet says. Nice to see your bird shots again, nothing left to desire here. #3 is my favourite, spins my imagination as the bird takes off.

Thanks for the positive comments everyone, I don't get a chance to get out much lately to take photos so this was great fun!
