To me, Photo 1 is the concentration and preparation, and Photos 7, 8 and 9 are during the applause. In Photo 10, our dancing star goes off the stage. ;)

I’m surprised the bird stayed there for you, every time I try to get bird pics they ether run away or walk up to me begging for food. My favs are #s 8 & 9

No, Raymond, this stork lives in a wild animal park.
And Jeff, it could not come towards me since there was a lake between him and me. Plus he was too busy trying to impress his audience (the lady stork) with his dance to really notice the people around.
This really was a dance, a mating dance. It went on for quite some time. Very interesting sight!

Thanks you all!
This show was great!
I was surprised so few people stopped to watch and wait for it to be over - it was quite a sight to behold. But then it wasn't for us people... and his lady friend PRETENDED to be totally uninterested ... :biggrin:

Great shots!
I tried to capture some wild storks yesterday... we have a river here they renatured a few years ago and the storks reapeared. Yeasterday there were 5 storks in the area, and as I tried to approach they just took off... Could anyone give me some tipps on how to get close to this kind of animal? Do I have to sit somewhere and wait for them to come?
