These birds have adjusted to the realities of existence by adopting this human settlement for living, Luciano.
Very good picture with the cluttered houses contrasting with the Storks.

Hello Luciano,
Very interesting view. I saw storks always on our very green area. Thanks for sharing.

My goodness, don't see a picture like this everyday! Never been to Morocco, this is certainly a roof top capture!

Hello Luciano,
I know this place. Very impressive to see all these storks. And I know this is only one of a lot of these places. Beautiful photo in a great composition and very good sharpness.

WOW ...this must be removed....we have building in the background...impossible ;)
Good day friend Luciano!Well, how interesting to see the new home of the storks and accepted as their natural environment. Gorgeous white balance and brightness I think!

Ciao Luciano, è proprio il caso di dire che quì le cicogne sono di casa. Un'altra ottima immagine di un uccello che sempre stimola la nostra fantasia. Un caro saluto, Paolo

Interesting observation, amazing how they are used to human habitation. Must be wonderful to see these birds in such proximity. regards yiannis

Ciao Luciano!
Bellissima immagine, nitida, ben composta.
Ottimi dettagli. Peccato per le costruzioni dietro che tolgono poesia alla scena...sei stato un po' sfortunato.
Resta comunque un'ottima composizione: complimenti.
Ciao! Vanda

Ciao Luciano. Le cicogne fanno come qualcuno di mia conoscenza..? Quando inzia il freddo se ne vanno in Marocco! Una prospettiva pennuta d'effetto per via della eccellente gestione di luce e colori. Contrasto al top.


Hi Luciano,
I can see a lot of them in my country but in summer. Great point of view. Amazing storks! Excellent sharpness and colours.
Have a nice weekend,

...praticamente come i piccioni da noi!!
bel ritratto d'insieme, e bel documento. Incredibile il contrasto dei nidi ormai vuoti delle cicogne, che fanno immaginare dei dintorni con ampi spazi agricoli, e il "fiorire" di parabole sullo sfondo!! come dire: civiltà rurale e tecnologie del nuovo millennio!!

Ciao Luciano,
una bella immagine di questo gruppetto di cicogne, che sembrano comunque mantenere un atteggiamento di coppia, ottima nitidezza e splendid colori naturali
Grazie e complimenti
Buona serata
Ciao Maurizio

Hello Luciano,

Best wishes,

Hi Luciano,
I've seen by own eyeball,in Marrakech I'm was (hotel Mamounia).
Interesting photo with good sharpness and beautifully natural colours.
Have a good weekend
Regards Jiri.

Hello Luciano,
Another excellent capture with outstanding clarity, perfect focus as usual and great details.
Wonderful composition with impressive sharpness. The white seems to be AT HOME on the roofs.

Salut Liciano,
je connaissais déjà ces cigognes de Marrakech que j'ai dailleurs fotographie également. Mais tu a réussi une très belle impression. Elles ne sont pas faciles à mettre sur foto. Bonne clareté et netteté et beau contraste entre le gris-brun et le rouge des becs.

Bonsoir Luciano,

Les oiseaux sont bien placés dans le cadrage. La prise d evue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs des cigognes. La lumière de l'après-midi rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.


so many, great capture, TFS Ori

Hola Luciano,
a Marraix hi ha de tot, bona captura de les cigonyes!
TFS & nice weekend, Ferran

Impressive and interesting scene Luciano! Very good composition and good sharpness. The lighting and the colours are fantastic.

bellissime le cicogne, l'ambiente... non molto , pero' sei riuscito ottenere una foto documento del posto e mostrare come questi volati si adattano al ambiente urbano, bisogna vedere il posto per procurarsi il cibo quanto vicino o lontano e',

complimenti per la foto,,

ciao, tino

Ciao Luciano,
A fine, well composed capture of White Storks on a roof-top in Marrakesh, showing how dependent they are on human habitation.
The lighting and natural colours are great.
Thanks and enjoy your Sunday,

Ciao Luciano,
Io non sarò lamentano dei pulcini che nidificano sul tetto della mia casa ... :)
Bravo è una bella immagine, eloquente e documenti!
Saluti, grazie per la condivisione, Jesús

Hello Luciano,
A great capture showing a number of White Storks in their natural breeding environment - a man-made environment! I remember a similar scene from visiting Marrakech some years ago but never managed to get a good shot - too many people in the way!!! A fantastic place to visit though!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Bonjour Luciano,
Très belle lumière et excellente profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Buona sera Luciano.
Wonderful many storks on roof in Morrocco.
Well collected the vivid image, lovely birds.

Hello Luciano

Jolie photos de ces cigognes dans l'environnement citadin,
belle lumière, excellent focus netteté et détails,



Ciao Luciano,
great capture of that neighbourhood of storks on the walls of Badii Palace. I've been there last week and maybe those storks are still the same individuals.
Kind regards,
