By combining an extender with your 500mm lens and using fast shutter speed, you have obtained a fairly flawless image of these two Storks at their nest, neighbour Jose. The one just landing on the back of the other looks elegant with its wing still open. It is a unique action shot that happens only once in a lifetime.
Thanks and regards.

Maravillosa fotografía documental. Con estas bella cigüeñas en su entorno natural; el macho pisando a la hembra; en su nido y con el regalo de dos blanquísimos huevos. Muchísimas gracias por este gran testimonio gráfico; José.

Bom dia Jose,
Yes this is the mating time for the Storks. But there are still eggs in the nest. Taken from an ideal POV in splendid light and beautiful warm colours. Great sharpness and details.

Hello Jozay/Jose,

Hope you are well. It is good to see you and your excellent photos here on TN. This is indeed a wonderful action shot of this beautiful pair of storks in their nest with two eggs.Storks are majestic birds, a part of the folklore of Europe, you are lucky to have photographed them in the wild. A perfect photo in every way, TFS, take care,

warm regards/Abid
