    November and this is a regular sight on my strolls through the fields. Hunderds of storks arrived on their way south or maybe they are staying?

    digiscoped flight shot

    I saw two storks hovering high up in the sky, and tried to digiscope them for the fun of it. Much to my surprise, I got some recognisable captures. This is a 800x600 crop out of the original. Quite messy but nice to know that digiscoped flight shots are almost doable :)


    I post this picture as I am curious to know this bird. The white part of underneath of this bird has the shape of man singlet. Legs are like heron's (Long). Any ID is appreciated. I try to capture again for better pic. Tq.

  18. Marabou Storks

    Marabou Storks

    Perhaps the closest thing to the "Angel of Death" - I think they actually look the part they play. Looks like a vampire holding his cloak and about to pounce on a victim.
