Another one of my Wood Stork family from the Jacksonville Zoo Rookery. You can see that it really does "take a village"!

    Well done - I'm always amazed that those high branches can hold the weight of several big birds like this! And BTW, in a pinch, look for flowers in home stores like Home Depot and Lowe's - the ones around here always have been good about letting me take photos.

Wow, what an amazing "family" catch. Terrific timing, and display of "village" work.
Your hand must be so steady. Fantastic capture.

Wow. This is fantastic! We can even see her landing gear! I bet she swooped in to give them all big hugs??

Amazing timing Rona. It's really a superb capture.

Great to be in your gallery tonight!
