nice shot of this Wood Stork.
You've composed it really well!
One thing I'd say is that the DOF is a bit too deep!
I think a better aperture would have been f/5.6 because it would have blurred the BG more while also giving you a higher shutter-speed.
Other than that though this photo has a great POV, superb exposure, excellent colours and a great note.
Thanks for sharing this!

You've caught this Wood Stork in a fine pose and in a natural environment. I like the profile of the head and solid bill. I expect it was at some distance away and you must have cropped it quite a bit.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Nice capture of a Wood Stork in what looks like difficult light. I like the pose and POV and it stands out well against antural BG. Thanks for sharing this 'beauty'!

Very nice true wild scene and cute bird. Excellent framing, composition and details of the entire image. Only it seems to me level of saturation and contrast is not enough but it is matter of taste. My best regards and TFS.

Wonderful shot of this Wood Stork faraging for food. Very neat and sharp image with perfect lighting and exposure of the white plumage. I like this natural setting and your chosen POV to portray it. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

This looks like an old man carrying heavy burdens. Not my idea of a beautiful bird, but it is also not a bird that appears on the gallery every second day and that itself is worth a smiley. Nicely captured in natural surroundings. I personally would have liked if the object was closer. This way one would have been able to see more detail of the interesting beak and face, as well as have a better view of the plumage. It is never the less an image I appreciated to look at with interest. Thanks for sharing.

Interesante foto, tal vez algo borrosa pienso que por no encontrarse demasiado cerca. Es natural de mi país, pero en mi zona no abundan. Curiosamente trabajando por el campo hoy vi 4 juntas descanzando sobre un puente que cruza un arroyo, la única que había visto antes fue una sola y hace 6 años.

What an unusual looking bird.
The scene is very well captured,and the stork is well placed in a natural setting.
Very good plumage detail.
The POV is well handled.
Lucky you, to see this in the wild.
