The Zulu call these tall, stately cranes uNohemu. Their distinctive golden crown of long, thin feathers gives them an air of royalty. Unable to withstand cold temperatures, they don’t migrate from their warm homelands in southern Africa, and have been there for more than 50 million years. I’ve arranged these three so they each have their own space to show off their crowns, while their black, red and grey markings create a bold graphic pattern.
