Sandhill Crane, Michigan
Photograph by Jim Ridley, My Shot
This Month in Photo of the Day: Your Photos
I took this photo of a sandhill crane at Wildwing Lake in Brighton, Michigan.
The shot was handheld.

What Makes This a Photo of the Day? The symmetry of the bird and its reflection are what first drew me to this image. I also love the energy captured in the forward movement of the bird as it races across the frame. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor
