In Sweden, Aleksander Myklebust caught this crane primping and preening its feathers in eye-catching detail.

Though he looks funny here, this crane could face more dangers than other birds when he takes flight: Scientists believe cranes are one type of bird that has a "blind spot" for power lines.
