I live in the North region and there are not the storks here. Perhps the herons only.
I like to take pictures of this nice and graceful bird.
As known, this is one of the Peace symbols.
Today there is a smell of new war in the Middle East, so I'd like to say: Peace to your home!

Ha ha! what a unique shot - stokes each with a sense of symmetry in where they decide to put their nest!
Freebird! Lynyrd Skynyrd!

A perfect moment, landing gear engaged, we are coming in to land :) And what a bonus that he does so on this architecturally beautiful structure too! Nice timing and great result.
All the best from Ireland

Architecture et nature,c'est bien vu; une photo prise au bon moment, à l'arrivée de la cygogne. Un beau message de paix.

A good sentiment to express at this volatile moment in the Middle East. A fine picture to accompany your note, and a wonderfully timed capture as well! A solid and stout tower, made out to be more of a welcoming refuge with nature. The bird with its landing landing gear down gives this a sense of anticipation of its arrival home.
Neat to see how these creatures have basically taken ownership here, and you've done a wonderful job displaying the moment in conjunction with an impressive close up of this architecture. Set against the blue sky, this really brings out the detail and texture from the otherwise muted tones. A very keen observation, well taken and presented. Great job! Have a good day ahead. Take care.
Cheers from Phoenix,

The Turkish old wives' tale about storks is that they bring good luck to the buildings on which they set up their nests.

amazing nests of storks on the monumental tower. Good shot. Fine captured place and theme in Segovia. Photo I like.
Have a nice day.

There are many storks in Poland. Maybe they are form poland :-) It's possible, really.
Once I drove a car and on the country road walked a stork. Hi walked and walked I coudn't drive. I had to wait for him to step aside.
It's a nice photo with storks in the leading role.
We say in Poland that babies are brought by storks - hahahaha :-))))
Have a nice day/evening!
