Six Word Saturday

By Ian Britton for http://www.freefoto.com

 White crane stands on one leg!

Any of you who do t’ai chi will be familiar with the expression but it wasn’t at all what I had in mind when I started this post.  I was watching the BBC production “Earthflight”, and marvelling at the courtship dance of the Japanese white cranes.  In a week in which me and the other half had been a bit frosty with each other, for reasons I won’t go into, this struck me as suitable material for my 6WS.

If only it were so simple!  The images in my head did not match up to anything I could find on the wonderful web- “white cranes” resulted in the above image.  The “Earthflight” website offered video footage, but not the right bit and no “stills”.  Change of tactic called for.  I found some gorgeous Dancing Cranes by Lucy Wang on YouTube but then realised I don’t have the facility to embed a video without an upgrade.  Oh well- you live and learn! (slowly in my case- have a look on You Tube and think of me)

Just remains to give the other half a kiss and link to showmyface whose idea Six Word Saturday is.  Come and play if you want?  If not, I’ll see you next Saturday.

  1. great 6WS! Dave has a FAB shot of a one-legged seagull – if that’s any use to you?!!! probably doesn’t sound as good though – Seagull instead of Crane?!!
