2018—Tour Jeté

Sandhill Cranes can look pretty goofy at times.  The expressions on their faces and their awkward flailings to take off on an iced-over pond can bring a smile to your face.  When I saw this image, it brought to my mind a ballet leap called a tour jeté because of the position of the feet and wings.  But what cinched the vision for me was that the spread of the tail looks like a tutu.
