    As I visit Wako now, I am struck by the difference from 10 years ago. Then, not a single wood stork in sight and the species endangered. Now, they are everywhere and upgraded to threatened. Almost crowding out the GBH and other species nesting now. Very challenging to get clean views, but as a grandfather I will take this any day over the thought of these fascinating beauties no longer walking on this earth.

    Detail in the whites look nice. The pose on the front bird is nice. Light doesn't look to bad.

    The whites look good but the knotty heads combined with a texturally similar background make the image a bit muddled. We want that head to jump off the screen and it doesn't at the moment.

    This is so mucn nicer than the last image.
    I like the intimacy portrayed.
    Looks like you blurred the BG to reduce its effect on the image- and that is a good thing!

    SH with a good EXP but for me, the juxtaposition of the two heads is not pleasing but at least you see the eyes of the bird in the back. But the shadow of the bird in the front on the bird in the rear is an image killer for me.
