Great shot of this bird - which some Danes concider being a national bird. Too bad but there's not many couples left which got kids on the wings (only 1 or 2 each year) - thanks for sharing this fine pose - surely a good catch you done.

What a fitting title - and a good imagination to spot it. As Jeppe says, we consider this our national bird, and according to Hans Christian Andersen it spends the winters in Egypt - so there you are. A fine shot.

You should have cloned out the grass and cloned in a tightrope. Seiously, it's a very good capture and fantastic note. Well done Gerhard. (I'll be posting a nice spider picture for just you in the next day or two).

Gerhard, Very fitting title/caption for your stork..I think how a photo is titled makes all the difference in that all-important first impression. This photo made me think of the Karate Kid movie... Now if the stork could just get a leg-up!! ;-))

I thought this guy was looking for landmines. Very good note supporting this and your heading adds to the impact of the shot. Thanks for posting.
Hermosa ave... buena perspectiva y colorido.
Grandiosa la pose del ave y tus notas son excelentes.
Me atreví a realizar un Workshop, presentando otra visión de la misma imagen... espero sea de tu agrado.

Very nice action shot, Gerhard. Pity they have to clip the wing to prevent him flying away. Good note too.

Fun and fitting title for this capture of the stork, Gerhard. A good posing you got indeed, that lets us see the beautiful underside of the wings. The diagonal compo and the space the bird has to "walk into" are very nice, and the colors are great.

A great shot, Gerhardt!
Great sharpness and colors.
The french country where we can find this big bird is called "Alsace".
Interesting note too.
