White Stork
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The White Stork (Ciconia ciconia) is a large bird in the stork family Ciconiidae. Its plumage is mainly white, with black on its wings. Adults have long red legs and long pointed red beaks, and measure on average 100115 cm (3945 in) from beak tip to end of tail, with a 155215 cm (6185 in) wingspan. The two subspecies, which differ slightly in size, breed in Europe (north to Finland), northwestern Africa, southwestern Asia (east to southern Kazakhstan) and southern Africa. The White Stork is a long-distance migrant, wintering in Africa from tropical Sub-Saharan Africa to as far south as South Africa, or on the Indian subcontinent. When migrating between Europe and Africa, it avoids crossing the Mediterranean Sea and detours via the Levant in the east or the Strait of Gibraltar in the west, because the air thermals on which it depends do not form over water.

Hello Jiri.
Lovely shot. The details are great as is the exposure. Like the colour of the beak too. Well done.Regards Siggi

Fabulous view of this large Stork sitting on its nest made from dry sticks, Jiri.
The black and white plumage of the bird is very attractive.
The background of deep blue sky accentuates the subject rather well.
Thanks and regards.
