Wood Stork, A Perfect Turn

Talk about a perfect spot, this was it.

Storks were active here and this bird flew right towards me, finally banking to land in the grasses with a few others.

What I think makes this photograph special is it caught many details usually missed.

The coloration of an adult stork is not only black and white. Look at the ends of the primary wing feathers. There is the distinct green tint to them. Also the feet and legs are clear allowing you to see texture.

Finally the ‘catch light’ in the eye is clearly very visible.

I tend to like photographs with more of the environment, but here so many pieces came together it’s a clinical book template.

Best viewed on a large screen.
