A Stork who was very simple and trusting in nature was asked by a colorful group of Cranes if he wanted to visit a newly planted field.
He joined the group, and went to the field with them.
However, everyone in the group ended up being caught by the Farmer's net.
The Stork begged the Farmer to let him go
"Please let me go" he said "I belong in the Stork family.
We are honest with good character.
I did not know the Cranes were going to steal."
"You may be a very good bird," answered the Farmer,
"but I caught you with the stealing Cranes and you will get the same punishment as them”
lesson: You are judged by the company you keep.
