Poetry in Motion

The title came to me when I saw these birds walk, in total sync with each other, mother and child, poetry in motion. 
Please enlarge the photo to get more detail.  You will be able to see the chick's feathers starting to grow in.  And thank you Deb from What's In My Attic for reminding me to do that.  I often forget.
Gray-crowned Cranes

That crown is spectacular.

The colours of the feathers are so beautiful and the backdrop of the ground with the pine needles etc. matches so well. The title is just right and a good description of mother and baby walking along.

An amazing capture, Denise. You always get the best out of your camera.

ps....Hi again --- I tried to answer you question about the Bird D'Pot Meme [for linking of bird photos] on your other post "An English Girl Rambles"...I'm over at the admin for my birding blog now so, this'll be posted as "Anni" instead of Hootin' Anni.
