These images were taken at the Park of the Orangerie in Strasbourg at Easter 2011.
The park acts as a stork sanctuary which provides a place for these white birds to grow and reproduce in peace.
They can be seen free-flying and nesting in the trees, which are adapted for this purpose.
Many appreciative thanks for all views, votes and comments on my 'Great Crested Grebe 2' upload.
Have a good day.
