One of the most beautiful Cranes in the world, the Black Crowned Crane is usually found in the shallow wetlands of sub-Sahara Africa during the wet season, which acts as its principal breeding, feeding, and roosting sites. The Black Crowned Crane is characterized by its dark slate-grey to black plumage, and  it has stiff golden feathers at the top of its head which make up its crown. Each golden bristle-like feather is a spiral that is white on one side and brown on the other with black at the very tip. I found  this bird and its mate foraging in Amboseli National Park in Kenya while  on Safari. this portrait focuses on  that beautiful eye, head and plumage.
