Adult whooping cranes are white with a red crown and a long, dark, pointed bill (immatures are brown in colour). They are the tallest birds native to North America with a height of 1.5 m, about half of which is legs which the cranes use to wade into deeper water to find food.

Photo taken at the Calgary Zoo, Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

I am an amateur photographer living in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.

I enjoy photographing the wonders of the world around me; whether that means capturing images of animals and wildlife, scenic natural landscapes, or man-made wonders.

I travel all over Canada in pursuit of this passion and my dream is to one day be able to do this full-time.

Thank you for your interest in my work,
Alyce Taylor
