Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!!!

Good morning everyone… Here we have a Marabou stork, a massive bird, and unmistakable due to its size, bare head and neck, black back, and white underparts. It has the largest wingspan of any land bird in Africa. I love these storks, and when spending some time with them they can be very entertaining. This photo was taken at Melkvlei and he was playing with a stick for almost an hour, repositioning it in his big beak, almost like prey.

Take a look and let me know what you think…


Cheers til tomorrow.

  1. Thanks for posting this, Hannes. I love these birds too. I know some people think they’re as ugly as sin, but I find something so appealing about them. Great photo!
