2/9/2011: Wood Storks in repose

With my recent postings of digiscoped pics from my trip to Florida, Wings on Wednesday is not much of a stretch from me this week 🙂

I had never seen this behavior before, and when I came on these two Wood Storks at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge taking their ease on a mudflat, I could not resist a quick shot with the Canon SX20is out the window of the car. I still don’t know if it is common behavior. A quick run at google this morning did not answer the question. If anyone knows more about this, I would like to hear.

Canon SX20IS at 560mm equivalent field of view, f5.7 @ 1/1000th @ ISO 80. Programmed auto.
