Blue Crane Portraiture

There is this couple somewhere in the outback of the village which I’m following now for some weeks (with consent of the farmer). I named then Jerome and Philomene and seemingly they are getting used to me for I can get closer and closer with my camera. Yesterday morning it was time for a portrait and they let me take the time for it. Thank you guys!

Blue Crane is the National Bird of South Africa.

There are hundreds ….

… of Blue Cranes if you know where to find them.

Somewhere, hidden on a (very) private landscape in the Overberg region in the Western Cape, South Africa there are at least a few hundred year round. The National bird of South Africa is classified as vulnerable but people in the field (farmers, etc.) have the idea that the population of Blue Cranes in increasing again.
