Hello Steve,
A nice presentation of this large stork with wings fully raised. Seems to have it's eyes fixed on something of interest just below. Focus is sharp and colors are true and natural. Good exposure in what appears to be some fairly harsh lighting. We don't have any storks in Ohio, but we do have herons. TFS.

Strange bird but very good picture Steve.

Thanks for sharing.
