    A Hooded Crane taken in Edinburgh Zoo at the weekend. I've stuck "(C)" in the title as I wasn't sure of the rules for this particular forum and one of the nature photography forums I'm on requires you to differentiate between captive and wild animals.

    Ah thanks, I knew it was something like "hooded" or "capped".

    Yep, LP knows his birds...that's an African Crowned Crane alright.

    I like how you chose to compose it. Nicely done.

    Great idea about the (c) and (w). I think that should be the standard.

    Oh yeah, fantastic shot too.

    I love the color contrast on the neck. The red/white/black is superb. My only complaint in the entire photograph is that the feathers coming out the back of the head match that of the left background. I commented this on your polar bear photograph as well, that I would love to see more contrast in color be foreground and background.

    Nevertheless, the colors exemplified in the foreground subject is great, and I appreciate the angle and depth of the shot.

    EDIT: I forgot to mention the texture on the neck of the crane is great as well. Quite unique.
