This is a crane that I ran across on a trip to see some family in Tyler, TX. I got a few pictures of this guy, but this one is the best. When we tried to get closer he took off, and I'm not the best at getting birds in flight yet.... so yeah, he escaped my lens. Anyway, feel free to critique this! I do listen to the advice you guys give me, and I love to hear it.

You've caught the bird brilliantly, a shame the whole of its reflection isn't in frame. I think I would experiment with the crop on this one, perhaps cropping off some (perhaps as much as half) of the left hand side. Because the bird is tall and thin, I feel a tall thin format would suit it (holding the camera on its side would have achieved this when actually taking it). Smile

Alright, thank you! I'll have to play around with that.
