Sandhill crane on its nest

Hi all,
I am new to this forum so please forgive any breaches of protocol that I might make. I do river restoration work for a living, and I get lots of opportunities to take great shots of wildlife. I may start posting a few photos if anyone has any interest. Last Friday I took this shot of a sandhill on its nest. The photo was taken with a Nikon 4300 digital through the eyepiece of my Swarovski ATS65. Hope someone enjoys it.

Lordy that is a big pic. By mousing the image about, I managed to frame the startling face. And now for the rest of the story: birds are dinosaurs. Looking at that face, can you argue?
