I was up at Pool Slough on Easter Weekend and saw several cranes doing they annual dance. I got a few interesting images, but this one stood out among the group. Even though it was shot wide open with a 80-200mm f2.8 lens, the background still had too much detail for my tastes.

The background was selectively blurred to give the image a little more pop.
