p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Painted Storks at Muttukadu Backwaters near Chennai, India


Saw many painted storks at Muttukadu Backwaters, just south of Chennai, India. This was taken with the 7D + 100-400L from a rowboat, so I could approach a bit closer.

Painted storks are listed as near threatened species by IUCN.

The first looks a bit off on the horizon line, but otherwise this is a terrific set. Cool looking bird. Great that you could get so close.

Thank you all!

Ken, what you see there is not the horizon. It is a sandbar covered with grass that runs at an angle to the field of view, which is why it looks tilted. Beyond the grass is sky and the horizon is somewhere hidden behind the top strip of grass. I used the legs of the storks to check vertical and as you can see, it is pretty straight.

Loved the last two as well! Good color, detail and contrast

The paddyfields(?) provide the perfect BG

Great shots of some awesome looking birds. Wish our storks had color like that. Forgot to add, I think somehow one of these guys grandfather hooked up with a spoonbill and thus that wonderful pink color.

Thank you very much, all!

Hayath, those were just some sandbars that separate the backwaters from the beach and the open ocean. They have mostly grasses and a few trees growing on them.

Don, yeah, they do look like some kind of result of some inter-species hanky-panky!
