White Stork

There happened to be only one White Stork in the park and it graciously obliged me.

Beautiful image, Jagdeep. The light is gorgeous and I like the foraging pose and good reflection.

Hi Jagdeep,
Love the lighting, foraging pose, and reflection. Details are great as well as the water dripping from the beak. Nicely done!

Lovely light and setting ! Why this ration instead of the normal 2:3 - the bird and surrounds would be perfect for even a panorama cut, I’d say. Techs, pose and action are just great ! Well done ! Cheers, Hans
