Usually I have trouble with flight shots but this one turned out ok.
The white stork is about 40 inches tall and has a wing span between 6 and 7 feet.
According to ARKive
"The white stork has a stout body, distinctive long neck and slender legs for wading. The iridescent black wing feathers contrast with the bright white plumage of the head, neck and body, and a patch of black skin surrounds the eyes. The bare legs and straight, conical bill possess a strong red colour that is acquired as the bird reaches adulthood"
