Ichabod (the headless) Crane
A red crowned crane foraging with its head and long neck totally submerged in the Setsuri River appears to be headless, reminding me of the old American legend of Ichabod Crane. I liked how a circle of ripples outlined the body.

Love the ripples and the contrasts!
What a great shot. It made me smile!
A lot easier to stick one's head in the water rather than the sand. Guess the "good" food is deep.
Thank you for your comments!
