Night was falling and I was heading for the airport in Hokkaido, Japan, when I spotted this young Japanese Crane in a snowy field. Its parents were foraging for food while this bird was playing and dancing with a dry leaf! It leapt and turned and dropped the leaf and picked it up again... Simply sublime
