Beautiful shot, Stanley. I love this species of Stork, and it is the only one I've seen here in the canal near where I do my walks..
 
Excellently exposed capture of this wood stork.
Highly disturbed here means, you try to find a niche to capture birds outside of a protected 9,55 square kilometres huge area and they threat you with a fine because you sit a few meters beside the path or because you use an access at a public area that people used for decades.
