White Stork (Ciconia ciconia)
Baixo Mondego, Portugal
Nikon D300 + Nikon 80-200mm f2.8 (at 170mm)
iso 200, 1/200, f/8


The purpose of this photo was to ilustrate the problem of electrocution and collision of white storks with structures of electric networks. A sunset with black clouds hiding the sky enabled this image.

Photo taken for the book "O Regresso da Cegonha-branca", published in 2010 in co-autorship with my good friend and photographer Luis Quinta.
