I dedicate this picture to our kind friend and skill photographer Peter van Zoest (PeterZ) with great pleasure.

When I saw his amazing shot Grey Crowned Crane I remembered that I captured this beautiful bird in Odessa Zoo almost three years ago. (Unfortunately, we have not this species in a wild :)).

I am a bit strange person (may be not only a bit). I often do not like many own pictures just after their capturing. However, after a while they seem to me pretty nice. This one was among them.

In any case, I share this picture (as well as own WS) with great gratitude and best wishes to Peter for its huge contribution here.
