[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The White Stork (Ciconia ciconia) is a large wading bird in the stork family Ciconiidae, breeding in the warmer parts of Europe (south to Estonia), northwest Africa, and southwest Asia (east to southern Kazakhstan). It is a strong migrant, wintering mainly in tropical Africa, down to the south of South Africa, and also in the Indian subcontinent.
It is a huge bird, 100–125 cm (40-50 in.) tall, with a 155–200 cm (61–79 in) wingspan and a weight of 2.3-4.5 kg (5-10 lbs). It is completely white except for the black wing flight feathers, and its red bill and legs, which are black on juveniles. It walks slowly and steadily on the ground. Like all storks with the exception of the Leptoptilos genus, it flies with its neck outstretched.

Faina, desi mi-ar fi placut si mai mult daca lasai mai mult spatiu subiectului. Vad ca ai folosit un teleconvertor. Poti sa-mi spui ce model si daca pastreaza autofocusul?
Numai bine

Hi Mircea,

Stunning shot, your placement of the stork is wonderful.
Great focus and exposure too.
TFS and have a nice WE MF!

Hello Mircea,
A nice capture of a White Stork on its nest. The colours and clarity against a contrasting neutral BG are great but maybe the bird needs a litle more space un the composition.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

superb shot , lovely bird

Hallo Mircea
This is a great capture! A simple, yet so beautiful composition. A special image with lovely prominent colours and clear details of the beak and beautiful feathers. You have photographed this Stork in a most relaxed position and pose displaying all the beautiful details of the back feathers. The image as a whole is presented in a most delightful manner. Lovely background. Thanks for sharing. Kind regards
