[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was thrilled to be able to see this gorgeous pair of Saddle-billed Storks while in Tanzania. The male has all black eyes while the females are bright yellow.

The male put up quite a show as it splashed in the water and then wildly flapped its wings. This reminded me of our dogs when they would violently shake after getting a bath.

Hi Ron,the couple after the single,and it's a new fantastic shot! The same quality but more rich,isn't easy to find new words to comment a perfection and a beauty like that,just my best compliments another time! Thanks for share,Luciano

"Gorgeous" is the right word to describe this pair of very colourful Storks from Tanzania, Ron. Your note helps in identifying which one of them is a male.
As usual, a well framed image with perfect exposure.
Thanks for sharing this classic image.

Difficult to think how this shot could have been better!

Another beautiful picture, Ron. Now van see eyes clearly. Nice colour and details. Attractive reflection of red colour on water.
Thanks for showing,
Looking forward to see more beautiful species,
