[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
White Storks are tall (1 m., 2.3-4.4 kg) long-necked wading birds with long bare red legs and a straight pointed red bill. The white plumage of the head, neck, and body contrasts with the black wing feathers highlighted with a sheen of purple and green iridescence. The contour feathers of the lower neck and chest are elongated to form a fluffy ruff that can be erected during courtship displays. A small patch of bare black skin surrounds their brown eyes. Sexes are similar in appearance, though males are slightly larger.

Hallo Ton
This is just stunning. Colours, details, motion,in flight pose. I really like this one especially the eyes and the sharp beak is beautiful and attention grabbing. Kind regards and thanks for sharing.
