Above are photos of a Marsh Wren showing off its gymanstic talent with a variation of the Iron Cross. It features the wren triumphantly spread between two stalks, with one foot on each.

In gymnastics, the Iron Cross is a difficult maneuver on the rings in which the gymnast extends  both arms straight out from the sides of the body while suspended in mid-air for at least two seconds.

Thanks to Mickey Raine, who captured the Marsh Wren striking the pose at DeKorte Park on Saturday.
