The Living Forest (16) : White Stork by Mark Billiau.

The Living Forest (16) : White Stork

Last weeks I was exploring several forests in the Belgian Ardennes.
This is the 16th. picture of a series illustrating the living forest.

I had a suddenly and unexpected encounter with this White Stork.
It happened at a shallow pond in a grand open place in the forest with enough room to fly for this large wading bird. I guess he was in search of some frogs for dinner.

Dutch name : Ooievaar
German name : Weissstorch
Latin name : Ciconia ciconia

Brilliant shot, Mark!
Beautiful lights and colors. Interesting as the light makes its beak semi-transparent... Congratulation!
Here, in Hungary we like these birds very much. There are a lot of chests on the countyside.

Wunderschön deine Naturdoku.

So sehe ich die Störche am liebsten... in der freien Natur.

Wonderful capture!

Gunther Hasler, 18.03.2009 at 21:34h

Ein besonders schönes Naturfoto, Mark, der nach Nahrung suchende Storch scheint dich noch nicht bemerkt zu haben!
Daß das Licht schon etwas hart war, läßt sich nicht ändern, evtl. könntest du - wenn du es nicht schon machst - im Raw-Format fotografieren, da hat man noch etwas Spielraum, die Belichtung beim "entwickeln" zu korrigieren.
LG Gunther

Marlies W., 19.05.2009 at 14:53h

WOW......, welch edlers und fantastisches Foto, da ist meins ja grad gar nichts mehr!!!!
Herrlich dieses Licht, der Schnabel leuchtet geradezu!!!
Grosses Kompliment
