Hello Aivar,
Wonderful capture in spite of negative weather conditions.Details,POV,colors,reflections on water and composition are excellent.

Hello Aivar, nice shot of this splendid stork.
Colors and details are super.



Excellent POV and composition. The detail and sharpness are good and the pic is well exposed as these birds could be tricky to get spot on being white. TFS,

You've really got a brilliant shot here, terrific bird, excellent composition - I like the vertical and horizontal lines and superb colours!! Normally I'd like more space in front but with the grasses sticking up behind it's just perfect!
