Wood Stork Portrait

Wood Stork Portrait - Canon 1D4, 500 f/4 IS, f/5, 1/640s, ISO 200.

I spent the last week in Florida on a family vacation. My original intention was to spend most of the early mornings photographing the various birds found in the areas we were to visit. Unfortunately, I got sick just before the day we flew out and took several days to fully recover. This meant that I was only able to do some birding one day, the day we were in the Everglades. Still, I managed to capture this portrait of a Wood Stork, a bird of whom I don't have very many images. One of the things I find interesting about this image is the contrast of the Stork's head to its body as well as the interesting detail on the Stork's head.

I'm back in San Jose for a couple more days and then will be heading out on this year's major photography trip on Thursday. Where I'm going there won't be any phone or internet access so I'll offline for a couple of weeks.
