Wood Storks, while being a United States endangered species is easily located in the area of Florida I recently visited. Chad and me were able to photograph this flock as they fed in a small roadside wetland. Here a Great Egret seems to stand guard as the Wood Storks feed.
A closer view of the Storks as they demonstrate their unique feeding style.
The dramatic lighting effect was created by a shaft of early morning sunlight shining through an opening in the surrounding foliage
Somehow that dramatic light suits their faces.Great shots.
How beautiful! I have never seen a Stork. Lovely flight shot.
What a strange looking bird and feeding habit they exhibit. It is nice you managed to see them.... and also, this beautiful light on the pictures, especially the third one, gave a wonderful atmosphere... Well done!
Nice vacation captures Coy! I love the flight shot especially!
I've not seen Wood Storks before. The lighting really gave you some fantastic shots and the flight shot is great. It looks like a different bird altogether.
I've never heard of a wood stork. I love the eduation I get from your site, Coy! Magnificent creatures!
