Still in Poland. White Storks are very tame here, because people are friendly towards them. This picture was taken in the agricultural enclave of Bialowieza, an area with many farmland birds that I found just as interesting as the primieval forest with the same name surrounding it.

Hi Paul,
This is a nice portrait of this "friendly" White Stork. Good details and nice DOF. I'm still amazed by the number of different birds you have in Poland. I guess I never saw a Stork, here... I don't even know if we have some… I'll check this out :-) TFS,

An excellent capture, Paul.
The exposure is perfect. Great POV. Sharp details. Good colors.
I really like the composition of this tall bird walking amid the tall grass.

Lovely Stork portrait. I like the natural background. Lovely colours, sharpness and composition. Really nice

Hello Paul,
We have few nests in the place where I live. All of them on roofs of barns or houses. Storks live almost with people so there's no wonder they are so friendly. They are kind of saint in Poland and they are believed to bring luck.
The picture is very good! I like the POV a lot, exposure is very good too.
