red crowned crane

This is a Japanese Red Crowned Crane. It is the second rarest crane in the world, and it's symbolic of luck and fidelity in Asia. The San Antonio Zoo has a pair of these and they are so magestic and beautiful. The background is a snow landscape which is where they do their mating courtship dance shown here. The red chop in the corner stands for longevity.
