Grey Crowned Crane


In the Maasai Mara region of Kenya, we encountered pairs of grey crowned cranes on several occasions.

On this occasion I managed to land a portrait of one of the cranes during a brief window of opportunity when it stopped moving.

The grey crowned crane is the national bird of Uganda.
