Yellow-Billed Stork [Mycteria ibis]

Distribution and habitat:
Occurs across much of sub-Saharan Africa. In southern Africa it is common to locally abundant in Mozambique, Zimbabwe, the eastern half of South Africa, northern and eastern Botswana and Namibia (including the Caprivi Strip). It generally prefers wetlands, such as pans, flood plains, marshes, streams, flooded grassland and small pools, occasionally moving into mudflats and estuaries.

Movements and migrations: Largely resident and nomadic, moving in response to fish availability and water levels. Its numbers peak from October-April in Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia, suggesting that it might be an intra-African breeding migrant.
Best Regards,

Hello Bungbing,
Fantastic photo of this Yellow-billed Stork. Light and colours are splendid. Excellent sharpness and pleasing eye contact.

Hallo Bunyapon,
Great capture of the Yellow Billed Stork in a fantastic pose. Here you managed to get eye contact, excellent detail in clarity and it's natural colours. Perfect low POV, placing of your object and DOF. For the time the photo was taken, good white balance. To my limited knowledge, a bit of noise in the BG. Still an excellent capture my friend.
Best regards,
Thanks for your positive comments on my photos. Always remember this, if you do not approve of an photographic aspect, say it. I can take it in a very positive way. For the next 3 months my time will be limited on TN due to working conditions.

Hi Bunyapon.
Your all last pictures are brilliant. I like them a lot. It is a pity that I cannot visit TN when I wish. Pictured scene and bird are fine and quality of the image is spot on. Details are fantastic as well as combination of sunlight and shadows. Colours of the shot are awesome. Well done and all the best to you.

Sawasdee ka Bunyapon,
Such a lovely capture withcexcellent light. The angle iscwell chosen to give a good view of fhe features and details.
Lovely view and the bird iscwell posed.


Hi Bungbing,
Beautifully composed image with great variation of lights and shadows. Colors, sharpness are excellent - maybe more shallow DoF, even the extreme 2.8 aperture could even be used, but it's nothing just a personal thought. Aesthetic image. Bravo.
I wish you & your loved ones a merry Christmas, best regards, László

Hello Bunyapon,
