Fishing in Spain

Photo by Fernando Sanchez de Castro / Alamy
Here's a very attractive photograph of a splendid bird, the White Stork (Circona circona) fishing in a river, in Tietar, Spain, west of Madrid.   The White Stork is a large bird with black and white plumage and red legs and beak.   It is found throughout Europe, Africa, India and south-western Asia.   Perhaps this particular stork has poor eyesight as it seems to be peering very closely at the surface of the water.   Or perhaps its targeted prey is very small...still, a lovely photo.
