I was so happy when these storks moved closer to each other. I could not focus on both as the main focus goal was trying to “delete” the wire fence and did not really want to, I think it worked better like this… Just after this they wandered away from each other.

    Brilliant!! Love the mirror-but-not-quite quality of it, the timing is superb :-)

  • Thank you! It was the only one where they were “touching” so I was really lucky :-D

    Wow, it got my attention – i was wondering at first glance was it a reflection in a window. So cool. colleen2012

  • Thank you! It was very lucky that I was able to get this shot AND that the camera behaved when I did it! :-D
