Dancing Crane - Brachypremna dispellens

Dancing Crane - Brachypremna dispellens
Fairfield, Wayne County, Illinois, USA
June 9, 2007
I couldn't get this crane to stop dancing. For 10 minutes it just bounced up and down in the same spot. I finally just fixed my focus to one level and started snapping away. This was in a dense second-growth woods.
