stork is back

This is a photo I am happy about for several reasons: such a good suprise to walk up to this tower in the botanical park, and see a stork there. It's like: "spring is coming, the migrating birds are back". and to be there just at that point, with the stork standing on its nest, just while the dove was crossing.

Seeing the stork brought back memories from another stork moment: in France, in 2013. Sitting outside for breakfast, and looking up, there was a flock of unusual birds. I tried a photo... and it was only later that I figured out that those were actually storks. Normally, in Germany, you see them only single or in pairs. never like that:

Stork is great!
I would have photoshopped the pigeon out. I loathe pigeons.

I love storks. I hardly ever see them where I live though.

I haven't seen storks in my area yet. Great shot!

Thanks! Here in the region, seeing a stork is still the exception, too.
