Common Crane (Grus grus)

She took my blood, sucked me dry. Anyway, it was a beautiful day, no clouds around. Double drat.

  11. BOB BONSOIR
    ELLE est incroyable cette grue et bonsoir encore les couleurs
    je la trouve très belle
    elle doit en faire des ravages je pense
    TU sais, on dirait que tu t'es amusé à la peindre tellement tes couleurs sont belles et si nettes
    Je suis fan de cette grue BOB
    Bonne soirée de mes ailes
