Wow, five feet tall that is incredible. I'm sorry there is only 1000 in the south and southeast Asia is only 1000. I hope that improves soon. That is a great picture.
That's a big chap, Alok! A well detailed portrait.
A great close up image of this youngster Alok and beautifully captured buddy!
superb photo of this impressive stork, Alok, showing great feather details, top quality work, many tfs!!!
he sounds a big bird alok...a cracking capture of this youngster...many thanks...
A wonderful close up and colourful capture you have of this youngster Alok. Brilliant and nice to see, well done.
He does look like a 'little' giant, Alok. Each one like him especially important since a threatened species.

Smoking image!
