鹤立鸡群【hè lì jī qún】

Recommended Posts

There is a group of chickens on the turf. One big rooster is displaying his golden feathers and strong body, yet another rooster argues that his voice is the loudest and the most beautiful. As they almost start to fight, a white crane flies down and stands among the chicken, both roosters are shocked by its beauty and stop disputing. 

[Definition] When someone has exceptional appearance or capacity among a group, just like a crane stands in a group of chickens.
