|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|White Storks are tall (1 m., 2.3-4.4 kg) long-necked wading birds with long bare red legs and a straight pointed red bill. The white plumage of the head, neck, and body contrasts with the black wing feathers highlighted with a sheen of purple and green iridescence. The contour feathers of the lower neck and chest are elongated to form a fluffy ruff that can be erected during courtship displays. A small patch of bare black skin surrounds their brown eyes. Sexes are similar in appearance, though males are slightly larger.|

very nice bird in flight capture
Excellent shot Ton!
This is just stunning. Colours, details, motion,in flight pose. I really like this one especially the eyes and the sharp beak is beautiful and attention grabbing. Kind regards and thanks for sharing.
