Grey Crowned Cranes in Amboseli National Park



On an evening game drive in , we saw a pair of Grey Crowned Cranes foraging close to the road and we stopped to get a picture.

I waited till the famous Crown was perfectly spread by the wind and took a few pictures.

I timed a capture when the looked directly at me and made that the feature image of this post.

We got frame filling compositions of this huge Jumbo busy foraging in deep swamp. I especially liked the picture (below) where it turned around in our direction while continuing to pick the fresh grass.

On a different note, the normally busy ever flying Wire-tailed Swallow was taking a break on a blade of long grass making a lovely portrait.

Even the omnipresent common Lesser Egret took a moment to pose for us and we finally would like to wrap this post with the juvenile Spider hunter that was constantly following its parent and pleading for food.
