A Beautiful Crane

BIrd

I took this photo in Lake Needwood yesterday. 


A most beautiful crane.


Such a long neck, skinny legs, smooth feathers, and a yellow beak.


When it took flight, it was so amazing. 


It’s wingspan was huge. 


And it soared and glided through the trees and into the sky. 


I wish I could have caught it all on video. 


So free, elegant, and graceful.  


There was something almost heavenly about it. 


Imprinted it on my memory–loved it. 😉
