    I like it, but might consider cropping off that bit of red fence post in the FG -- it's a bit distracting. So, did you offer him a bit of your PB & J?

    Nice and sharp.

    I'm sure you can tell Goofy from Bludo, but are you sure it is a stork?

    I think it is a type of ibis (white ibis, maybe). I also agree with the suggestion to crop off the fence post on the lower right.

    Yep....I googled white ibis and it sure looks like this guy.

    The cropped version does look better....thanks to all who made that suggestion
