Sadulnokk-toonekurg / Saddle-Bill Stork

Vaido (Võrumaa, Estonia) on 6 October 2020 in Animal & Insect.

The saddle-billed stork, like most of its relatives, feeds mainly on fish, frogs and crabs, but also on small birds and reptiles.
They move in a deliberate and stately manner as they hunt, in a similar way to the larger herons. (Wikipedia)

This shot is one of my favorite about birds. Fine framing and sumptuous colors… Brilliant!

@Ana Lúcia: Thank you! I like to do environmental shots, which give an idea of the animal's habitat.
