[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
The long, slightly decurved yellow bill is diagnostic. During the breeding season the naked facial skin takes on a eddish colour. In flight appears similar to white stork but differs by having a black tail. Wing coverts and black are tinged with pink. Imm; Similar to ad, but lacks the pink wash and its head and neck are greyish, not white. Habitat : Lakes, large rib-vers and estuaries. Common resident in the North but rare summer visitor further south. Call : normally silent except during breeding season when it gives loud squeaks and hisses.

God capture. Nice pose. Would have liked a little more detail in the shady area around its neck and face.

je viens d'essayer et un simple reglage auto des niveaux sous photoshop donnerait un ciel bleu.cela rendrait la photo meilleur.
