[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
White storks are large, wading birds. They are covered in white feathers, except for the black primary feathers on their wings. They have long, sharp bills, and slender legs that are bright orange. Hatchlings and young have black bills and yellowish gray legs. Adults stand from 100 to 115 cm stall, with half of that height being made up by the legs. Their wingspan is 155 to 165 cm. Males are larger, on average, than females but both sexes are identical in plumage.

Hi Sky.
Perfectly composed action shot. You have frozen the movement very well. Sharpness and details of the bird and of the grass are very good too. You have selected DOF excellently. TFS and my regards.
