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.Smile
Have a good day.

Two superb images ****. For me the longer shot showing this magnificent birds magnificent tree top nest is superb. Whilst the close up is a great ornithological sstudy with superb detail, clarity and colour.

Excellent! Very clear and sharp. Super image ****, particularly version 1.
It is a pity you couldn't have removed a couple of the twigs, or at least used a couple of knitting needles to hold them down!
