On cold mornings some fly with their legs tucked up. I had never seen this, it does look odd.

Nice detail and light. Never seen this, but I suppose it's never cold enough for our cranes to fold up their legs. Well done. Voted.

Wonderful inflight capture Tom. Isn't that interesting about the feet. I'll have to check my Bosque pics, 'cause some of those morning were REALLY cold!

Exactly my thought when I saw the thumb-"Boy, it must have been a really cold day."
