Again, back to the archives.
This time, a picture from the summer 2009, from my trip to Danube Delta. I consider that it is a shame that I have only two good (I mean, first is good-with the great egret, second more or less good-with white stork) pictures with birds from there, the birds paradise. But there were to far from me, and my lens could not reach them in decent images. I mean, I have to crop so much to fill the frame with a bird, but the resulting picture is awful!
I am considering this picture with white stork the second more –or-less- good image from there. The bird was resting on a high pillar, and I was approaching, as slowly and invisible ( a non-sense in a open filed) as possible. I took some pictures of the sitting bird, but in the end, it flew away, unfortunately, showing to me the back, so no front image.
Of course, is a crop, but, as I read on the forum about composition, I will say: “long lives the crop!” , even if is not the best crop that I could do.
But I hope you like it, and I will dedicate to all bird photographers who are using the crop tool for better bird images.

`neata buna Oana,
astazi am onoarea sa fiu vecin de galerie cu tine.
a venit si a plecat barza de la tine ?
Oricum ar fi , sunt de acord cu Razvan, pasi, mici marunti dar foarte energici. Uite un nou domeniul, cel al pasarilor unde iti faci aparitia.
Fain POV, felicitari.
O zi minunata,

Gracias por tus comentarios e información adicinal a mi fotografía Oana.
Bonita y oportuna toma de esta cigüeña en descenso, muy habitual también en mi zona,

Hello Oana !
The White Stork is the symbol of the region where I live - Alsace - and I love these birds. This capture here is amazing, as you have managed to freeze the Stork in mid-flight, in a great pose. Th blue sky in the BG looks fantastic, and I also like the composition, the details, the POV. Very well done !

Hello Oana,
A lovely in-flight capture of the White Stork, a beautiful bird that we hope to see here in the spring again. Beautiful details and colours and well framed.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hi Oana.

This is such a beautiful capture of this bird in flight. The focus is very good with pristine sharpness on the head and legs. The spotless blue sky really makes the image pops.

Top drawer shot and TFS.

Best regards,
