[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
Un autre oiseau que l'on trouve dans le parc national de Chobe, qui n'est en fait pas une aigrette mais une cigogne à bec jaune - ou tantale ibis - comme indiqué par Peter dans sa critique...
Il fréquente les paysages dégagés toujours situés à proximité d'un point d'eau. Ses endroits privilégiés sont les vasières des lacs, les marais, les cours d'eau à débit lent, les lagunes. On peut également l'observer sur les terrains inondés, dans les prairies voisines des eaux douces. La présence d'arbres, même clairsemés, est nécessaire pour la nidification.

Hello Cecile,
A beautiful clear coloured and sharp photo. But....this is no Great Egret but a Yellow-billed Stork (Mycteria ibis). And.. The stork is very much centred. Better to take a crop from the right sight.
Regards,
Peter

Hello Cecile,
wonderful clarity and focus of the stork. I particularly like the reflection in the water, gently disturbed by the ripples.

Nice work.
