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. ;-)
