Hello Chris,
wow, what a wonderful capture of this beautiful Painted Stork with good sharponess and marvellous colours. I especially like the plumage very much, which could also be used as a design for an evening dress. Congratulations!

Hello Chris,
An amazing creature this Painted Stork, which I never had seen until now. Well presented with this square composition and an ideal pose of the bird, allowing view on its plumage and the head in profile. What a beak too!
