Take off stork style. Okavango Delta, Botswana.

Once again from the Botswana file.   A fairly common sight on the Okavango Delta is the Saddle-billed Stork either wading through the shallow waters or flying overhead.    Approaching this bird in a boat , unfortunately it took flight away from us and so I wasn't able to get the best angle on him.  None the less I think the sequence of shots is interesting.   A fast shutter speed was used of course,  check out those water droplets!  :-)  KD
