Love the third one. You can see the shapes of the bones and muscles under his feathers, it makes him look a little like a puppet...

What lens did you use?

Excellent capture of cranes! They are hard to find in the wild

In Japan, they are delicacy.

Thanks for the kind remarks all. Knochelbiter, I used the sigma 50-500 on all those shots.
