Wonderful to see this uncommon stork! Excellent DOF, nice POV, superb sharp details, gorgeous composition, and perfect natural colors. I like the blurry green BG as well. Very well done, my friend, and thanks. Have a beautiful day!

A very nice close image with a rare bird in my region.....Very shy bird and difficult to shoot with the camera. The details are impressive.
nice portrait of an ABDIM'S STORK an intra-african migrant and close related to Black Stork

Tom is right about the ID. This is a Abdim's Stork, ciconia abdimii.
But the portrait is very beautiful. Great sharpness, details and a very attractive pose. Beautiful colours and a fine composition.

What a coll looking stork!! We don't have anything here looking like this!! What an exceptional presentation; sharp detail with feathers so vibrant. Curious to see where they are breeding this guy in the US. Haven't ever seen one before!! TFS!!

What a great portrait of this stork. Excellent definition and beautiful colours and textures. May I suggest cloning out the OOF bit of white background just above the tip of the bill? I think it will be an improvement but very good as is. Best wishes.
