I'm assuming some sort of stork, seen in the US in Florida.

Wood Storks (Mycteria americana)...pretty funny looking, aren't they?

You were shooting in your own neck of the woods?

Yes Lynn, I outfitted one of my sons with a camera and we went to Paynes Prarrie to see the gators. But with low water levels the gators were scarce.

That's quite a sharp image — Great!

The two storks are so clearly defined in contrast to the gently blurred background.

I've never heard of this species, nor do I recall ever seeing it in general bird books.

Thank you for posting it and thereby educating me.
