I took this shot of Grey Crowned Crane at Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya.


Grey crowned cranes (Balearica regulorum) are a common sight in the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. These elegant birds are known for their distinctive grey plumage and striking golden crowns, which feature a tuft of long, black feathers.


The Masai Mara is an excellent place to see these birds in their natural habitat. The reserve is home to a healthy population of grey crowned cranes, which can often be seen foraging for food in grassy areas and wetlands. They are also known to gather in groups, known as "dances," where they perform elaborate courtship displays.


However, it is important to note that grey crowned cranes are classified as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) due to habitat loss and fragmentation, as well as illegal trapping and trade for the pet trade. As such, visitors to the Masai Mara should take care to observe these birds from a distance and avoid disturbing them or their habitat.


All digital purchased pictures are 300 dpi resolution.


A resolution of 300 dpi (dots per inch) is considered to be the standard resolution for printing high-quality images. DPI refers to the number of dots that can be printed in a one-inch row. When you have a high dpi, it means that the printer can produce a higher level of detail in the image, resulting in sharper and crisper prints.


The importance of 300 dpi resolution for a picture is significant, especially when you want to print it. If you're printing an image with a lower resolution, such as 72 dpi, it may appear blurry or pixelated when printed. This is because the printer cannot produce enough dots to accurately represent the image, resulting in a loss of quality.
