Hi Patrick,

Thanks for posting.

beautiful pic, great light, TFS Ori

Hello Patrick,
There's most of the time a Yellow-billed Stork at the Sunset dam in Kruger National Park. Always busy fishing and doesn't mind about the hippos and crocodiles. They(we:-) call him Harry...:-)
So I thought this could be actually this fellow..
This is the Masai Mara though:-).
You used the beautiful light very well; I kind of like the lovely colors onto the water. You also provided a lot of space for the water area which is a good choice, not only for the reason mentioned above but also composition-wise.
Well done.

Hello Patrick,
Very beautiful photo. Not only through the Yellow-billed Stork, but specially through the splendid colours of red/orange and blue in the water. Also an excellent composition.

Hi Patrick
L'oiseau est très beau, les couleurs très belles, de plus l'oiseau se détache parfaictement du fond.

Un plaisir a regarder.
Merci et au revoir...JP

bonjour Patrick
fantastique image ! les couleurs sont splendides sourtout celles de l'eau, belle netteté de l'oiseau. J'adore sa pose
du beau boulot

Sometimes the simplest compositions make the best photos, well done.

Bonjour Patrick !
Vous avez su capturer cet Ibis au meilleur moment, alors qu'il est en train de pêcher dans le lac (la rivière ?). Comme toujours sur vos photos, les détails tout comme les couleurs et la composition sont magnifiques. J'aime bien aussi les reflets de la lumière sur l'eau. Félicitations !

Hello Patrick,
This is a lovely composition showing the Yellow-billed Stork sharply in focus. Excellent details and colours too. The light is wonderful and I like the small ripples on the water.
TFS and best regards, Ulla

hello Patrick

The glow of light/shadow and reflection on the water is really what makes this shot much more interesting with the ripples and the bird placed at the right position in this capture. Good focus sharpness and clarity helps to make it looking good.

tfs, bill

Hi Patrick
You have captured this colorful guy with good quality. I like motion of water and pose of bird.
