Jabiru Nest

What is it about storks that make them so charismatic? It is difficult to articulate the reasons, but the Jabiru is one my favourite vertebrates. Encountering a Jabiru stork nest? Joy! It was far away and high in an enormous tree, and our boat would not stay still. Multiple rapid shots produced a couple of respectable images. Seasonally flooded forest, Pacaya-Samiria Reserve, Peru ("Jabiru mycteria").
