The White Storks have recently been dealing with something new to their lives: flight. And landing.They didn’t mind my watching their rough and ready attempts, though.
The Black Storks, however, are much more elusive. So when I bumped into this lovely specimen during a stroll through the reed beds, we were both a bit surprised about that meeting.
I took this next photo very close to the same spot in the reed beds, so I assume this is the whole family on an outing. Two of the storks looked quite small and not so sure yet on the wing.
Meanwhile, daddy White Stork was busy catching lunch. (out of focus, photographing skills 101 failed, I know)
On really rare occasions – first time for me – one can see both species together.
