Wood Stork ©2013 Sandy Scott

This exceptionally detailed portrait of a Wood Stork is our new photo of the week. Gallery member Sandy Scott took the photo on August 31, 2013, when the bird perched on top of his neighbor’s roof in Seminole, Florida.

Wood Stork, an endangered wading bird of southeastern swamps, has a bald head and neck. Scott’s photo is remarkable because the bird’s dark eye and head are as crisp as its white feathers. He took the photo with a Canon 70D and a 100-400mm lens.
