Leaping and flapping their spread wings, a majectic pair of mated adult brolgas reinforce their bond with an elaborate and enthusiastic courtship dance. Comprising intricate sequences of coordinated bows, theatrical jumps, runs and short flights, dancing is the most spectacular of all the brolga’s social behaviours.

    This is so beautiful, Ciska! Reminds me of the sandhill crane family I saw everyday — and photographed — while on vacation in Florida. I hope to paint the sandhill cranes one of these days. And your painting will be my inspiration!
