[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Sarus Crane (Grus antigone) is a large non-migratory crane found in parts of the Indian Subcontinent, Southeast Asia and Australia. The tallest of the flying birds, standing at a height of up to 1.8 m (5.9 ft).The Sarus Crane is easily distinguished from other cranes in the region by the overall grey colour and the contrasting red head and upper neck. Like other cranes, they form long-lasting pair-bonds and maintain territories within which they perform territorial and courtship displays that include loud trumpeting, leaps and dance-like movements.

Hello Joy,
An interesting bird with this red coloration of the head. A nice decentred conposition and subtle colours. It looks like a painting almost. Sharpness could have been slightly better.
Well seen.
