Resting Sandhill Crane
Not a particular amazing image, I just loved the overall colour palette here with the reeds in the background complementing the plumage.
Thanks to those who viewed or commented on the previous posting.

Hi Steve -- agree regarding the color palette...really awesome. I love how the BG colors are almost the inverse of the bird as you move up and down the frame and the red head really pulls it together. The resting pose is very peaceful. If you have it I could see just a *sliver* more room on the bottom as to not cut off those last little neck feathers but not by any means a real issue. TFS
Thanks Alex, sadly no more room at the foot of the image, but agree, a sliver more would not have hurt, although I could extend it without much of an issue, but not much.
I would say this is an amazing image, what a mood that is expresses. Nicely presented, excellent soft light with fine detail
Love the composition and as you mentioned the complimentary background colors. Your image conveys a real sense of peace. Thanks for sharing it.

Beautiful Color Palette. I which you could have got a better sun angle which would have completely removed the shadows on the bird, but still this is a beautiful image.
Congratulations on the capture. Thanks for sharing.
love those eye lashes Steve, was this from Reifel? looks like you had sun in BC!
Yep Arash, as you know, predicted crap weather, but BC can change oh so quickly . I must PM you too!!!!
