Photographer: Bonnie Flamer
Location and date: Isurui Ito Tancho Crane Sanctuary, Kushiro, Japan, February 26, 2016.
Description: I took this image while visiting the Red-crowned Crane sanctuary on Hokkaido, Japan. I concentrated on the top of the crane's head while it was grooming itself and was surprised that it doesn't have feathers on the crown.
Gear: Nikon D7100.
