My Year in Photos – April 21st – "I’m not Storking you…", originally uploaded by henweb.
I’m not at work today due to some emergency childcare issues – namely, our regular childcare is stuck on an island near Portugal with no way of getting home. So I decided to take Robert out in the sunshine to make the most of the upturn in the weather.
We headed to Beale Park which was delightfully quiet and bright, what with it being a weekday and all. Amongst the things we saw were these two storks, who look very elegant. What you CAN’T see, just below the camera shot is a large pile of dead and half-eaten chicks, which the stork is apparently fed on. I opted not to make today’s photo that, worrying for people’s sensibilities! :D
