[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
La grue couronnée noire se distingue par ses caroncules rouges placées différamment et la coloration beaucoup plus foncée de son plumage. Des deux espèces, c'est la plus menacée mais aussi probablement la plus élégante. On la rencontre dans la plupart des zones humides situées dans les savanes herbeuses d'Afrique.

Bonjour Catherine,

I didn't realize that you are a member of TN as well as TL. Nice to see your photos here! This is a terrific close-up of the Black Crowned Crane. They have to be one of the most colourful of the larger birds. We don't see them walking around here, of course, as you don't where you live. But, I've seen them in our local zoo. The details and colours of your portrait of this bird are wonderful. Your great blurred BG brings out the crane's head very well. They have fantastic eyes. TFS.
