The White Stork

Two birds are perched on a dead tree while 5 others are grazing in the middle of a field close by. The light is not good, and the clouds are quickly thickening… A few couples have been nesting and hibernating in the area for a couple of years now, much to the delight of everyone around! These pics were taken from the car at 35/40 m from the dead tree with the 300mm lens + the 1/4 converter.

La Cigogne blanche – Très peu de lumière aujourd’hui mais malgré tout j’ai tenté les images depuis la voiture… Le groupe grandit et se scinde souvent, mais certaines d’entre elles reviennent régulièrement près de chez moi. Quelques couples commencent à nidifier et hiverner dans la région depuis 3 ou 4 ans.

Les nuages s’épaississent, le peu de lumière me lâche, la montée des ISO s’impose donc et bien sûr le résultat s’en ressent.

The clouds are thickening fast and and the lack of light impairs the sharpness:


Wing span: 1,55 / 2,15 m
Weight: 2,3 / 4,4 kg
