There were a few flying ants around on the day this shot was taken and several bird species were availing themselves of this food source - but I was surprised to find a stork doing so.

We like pork scratchings and crisps which are small morsels of food, so why should storks not love tasty morsels like ants? This is a well observed and well captured image.
