These guys are quite active at the moment, the farmers are mowing their grasslands, and the stork follow thetractor to catch all the bugs 'n thingsthat get disturbed, but soon they'll be on their way back to Europe

Very nice stop-action shot. Did you see "Winged Migration," by any chance?

Yup, it got an Oscar nomination in 2003 for best documentary. Amazing closeup photography of birds in flight, taken from light-wing aircraft, balloons, etc.

Great shot Jake, and I like the fringe of light on the body as well. Looks like you were right under this one. Be careful, those things look heavy.:-)

That is a really nice aciton shot. Nice detail as well.
If you can find Winged Migration try to get it in DVD. There is a great, How'd they do that? feature on the DVD. Almost as good as the movie itself.

All the Best,
smac
