|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Ciconia nigra is a widespread summer visitor to central and eastern Europe, with a patchier distribution in the west and a partly resident population in Iberia. Its European breeding population is small (as few as 7,800 pairs), but constitutes >50%|
of the global population, and was stable between 1970–1990. Although many populations increased during 1990–2000, declines in the Baltic states meant that the species remained stable overall. Nevertheless, its population size renders it susceptible to the risks affecting small populations. Consequently, it is evaluated as Rare.

This is a bird I'd love to see! You've captured it very well showing its profile and the lovely colours of the plumage. Fine composition too.
TFS and regards, Ulla
This is a picture of a rare bird! I knew of its existence but have never seen one. Basically, the composition is very good but I would have preferred a less busy background. I like the way you distributed the empty space around the stork. In spite of the difficulties of exposing a black and white subject in full sun, you did an excellent job here. No details were lost within the bird's plumage. The red color in the legs and beak are all this picture needs to live a bit. Well done! Thanks!
With Friendly Regards,
what a great bird!
