Wood Stork's Featherless Head

The Wood Stork is a large impressive wading bird with a large strong curved beak and white feathers with black trim on the wings, and an almost featherless head as can be seen in this photo.

Wood Stork in Flight

Wood Storks have been known to fly as high as 6000 feet and as far as 50 miles in search of food.

They nest above water to prevent predators such as raccoons from feeding on their eggs and young.

Wood Stork

This is probably my all-time favorite photo that you've probably seen somewhere already. To me, it appears to me that this Wood Stork is as interested in me as I am of it.

Post-Processing

I use minimal post-processing on my photos, I try to keep them as I see them through the camera. I do crop and resize them for fast viewing online but that's about all. It appears as though post-processing had almost become a necessary step with digital images which I honestly don't understand. With the quality coming out of modern digital cameras it seems unneeded for my use at least. I understand the need for professionals and many types of photographs but my focus is primarily wildlife which, in my humble opinion, shouldn't be processed as would other formats.

Of course, there are exceptions such as my favorite Woodstork photo on the top of these pages.

Wood Stork

Wood Storks block the sun's reflection on the surface of the water with a lifted wing allowing them to see their prey more easily.
