~Photos of the Day `11/12/2014` – Wood Stork Searching for Breakfast~

Location: Myakka River State Park, Sarasota, Florida

This morning the Myakka River was filled with birds searching for breakfast. This Wood Stork was fun to watch as she hunted for a morsel. She turned up a good sized fish, which took her a few minutes to get down.

"Got something?"
“Got something?”

 

"I finally got one!"
“I finally got one!”

 

It was a big fish. She almost has it down.

The photo below, of a Wood Stork, was taken last evening as the sun was setting over the Myakka River.

    1. Hi Ida, thank you! They are fascinating. They are funny looking; however when moving, fishing or grooming they can appear graceful! Thanks for stopping by.

  1. You take such amazing photos! I love seeing a big stork in the wild and living in Florida, we have a chance to see such a variety of birds. I posted a rare sighting that we had about a week ago. I didn’t get very good photos but it was exciting! Hope you can stop by to visit! Thanks, Diane
