This Will Get Your Attention

You will probably hear the stork coming before you see him.

These are two quick shots taken as a Wood Stork flew across  a dike I was walking. I had been following their flight path as they landed behind tall grass. I just didn’t realize they were coming in low on this trail… I would have been better prepared LOL.

I know it seems early, it’s winter! But not down in the Lowcountry.

It may be cold at night yet the bigger bird are already making plans.

These Wood Storks are not near any known rookery, but they didn’t care.

Storks Over Head

I tend to skip most over head shots. Unless the angle is prefect, or the bird is unique the shots are usually just OK.

Wood Storks are special, but again it’s an over head shot.

Well, I was following their path to see where they were hunting. As I got closer, so did the new ones flying in.

Finally I went with the flow. These shots are several different birds as they flew low heading to join a flock ahead on the trail I was walking.

As you hear those big wings pumping the air going by you think of the extra memory cards in your pocket and keep shooting.
