Congrats to Erika Skogg for winning the Bird In Context Assignment!

“I took this photo the summer of 2014 in Tanzania (Ngorongoro Conservation Area). I had been watching these cranes begin to jump and dance around each other, so I held down the shutter to get multiple shots hoping to catch them in a unique position,” says Skogg. “When I reviewed the sequence, I chose this photograph of them beak to beak, creating an almost mirrored image of one another.”

Equipment: Canon EOS 7D, Canon 100-400mm L series lens
