    Saddlebilled Stork

    One of our most imposing storks with the huge red bill with a yellow shield. I'm guilty here of zooming too close and filling the frame in the field I'll put that done to over excitement. I think the image needs a bit more room at top and bottom.

    C&C welcomed

    A very unique look to this beauty. Yep! a little more space top and bottom and if you need to reshoot, hopefully you can catch him facing you but a great capture none the less!

    Hi Frank, agreed. I got a bit excited but next time I will do it justice.

    Until then Clive this will do as a nice place holder! Very interesting looking bird. You could use his bill as quite the weapon.

    Great catch.
    Sometimes the first catch is usually lacking in one way or other. Find him again and you will have some really great shots.

    I agree that a little more top and bottom would set him off a bit better, but I am also very glad you captured his back and that incredible bill. The colors in the grass are very appealing. Great job!
