Attention please - here comes the national bird of Poland. Every Pole know that White Storks are 'our' birds :-) I don't know why this one is all dirty. Shame on him.

Every fourth stork comes from Poland!

Description: White Storks are tall (1 m., 2.3-4.4 kg) long-necked wading birds with long bare red legs and a straight pointed red bill. The white plumage of the head, neck, and body contrasts with the black wing feathers highlighted with a sheen of purple and green iridescence. A small patch of bare black skin surrounds their brown eyes. Sexes are similar in appearance, though males are slightly larger.

Diet: White Storks are highly opportunistic feeders who will consume a wide variety of prey items including insects, frogs, toads, tadpoles, fish, rodents, snakes, lizards, earthworms, mollusks, crustaceans, and, rarely, the chicks or eggs of ground-nesting birds. Foraging storks search for prey visually while walking deliberately with bill pointed toward the ground. When prey is spotted, they cock their necks back, then jab the bill forward to grasp their victim.

Great shot, he's very dirty.
Great job.
TFS.

Beautifully sharp and clear capture of this scruffy-looking fellow. He might consider taking a leaf out of the book of his next-door neighbour the bathing flamingo ;-))
Good light, colours and POV.

Ha Grzegorz,

What is this, dirty pictures on the site?
Very good Photo, special.
In Holland they tell the little children that the storks bring the babies!

thanks,

Hendrik

Nice image. Sharpnes is perfect and the light is spot on. Just a pity you had to aputate the legs!

That's one dirty bird Grzegorz. Excellent exposure on the whites revealing nice detail. Not sure about the composition. I think cutting the bird of at the leg is always a bit risky.

Can they all say Djin Dobr?
This is a beaut picture, lots of character - he looks as if he has been pushed into a mud pool and now he is not quite sure WHAT to do! 10/10

Very good image Grzegorz. Dirt adds a touch fo "real life" to it. Very good sharpness, POV and light. Only flat note: cutted legs. I like your note ;-)

Nice shot Grzegorz. It is unusual to see a bird looking so dishevelled and dirty. Maybe he was celebrating the New Year too long.

What an intersting an unusual post, Greg. Nice details and composition. This one looks like he's been bullied. I like this one a lot. Thanx for sharing.

Nice shot. I like the lighting here.

By chance, your stork (I feel embarrassed for him/her :-) is just next to Elize's flamingo. So, I see only two solutions here. Or they go together for more drinks to forget about the difficult job of being a star on TN, or they go for a bath together, followed by a make-up and a serious featherdressing session before becoming favorites in the new breed section as flamingstorks :-). Wait and see. Very good light and amazing subject. Well done Grzegorz.

He really is a slob, or did the fish fight back?

The dirt here adds a lot to the impact of the shot - it is seldome that one sees a dirty bird.

Very well done and thanks for posting

Nice shot of this very dirty stork. Like everyone else, I wonder how he got this dirty. Makes a much more interesting photograph.

Great picture Grzegorz.
Very good sharpness, good exposure and colours.
And like yhe others I wonder how it could be so dirty.
Very well done .

Oh, what's happened to him? Legless and dirty. Good picture and story too. He leaves us all wondering WHY...
TFS

Grzegorz, great title, great colors.

A very nice slightly blurred bg and, as usual, perfect sharpness.

Another stunning job with a nice title.
