Photographer's Note

This is a Japanese or Tanchou Crane in Kushiro, Hokkaido. Unfortunately this was is only semi-wild, taken in a reserve.
The red patch on the crane's head is not feathers, but skin, I guess simliar to a chicken's cockscomb.
I was actually hoping to photograph some Tanchouzuru purely in the wild on my trip, but it wasn't to be. Hopefully next spring I'll be able to capture some tanchouzuru in the wild.
