Jolies photos, ils ressemblent un peu à  des cigognes.
Ray: Oui ... Ce sont des cigognes asiatiques à bec ouvert, Martine.

Yes...They are Asian Open-beak Storks, Martine.

Aren't they lovely things. But I doubt the local fish population will share my appreciation of them
Ray: These blokes prefer snails to fish, Chris.
A powerful point of view
Ray: I was pleased to grab the shot as it cruised towards me, Ruthiebear.
A very picturesque landing!
Ray: Pleasant to observe these birds, Mary.

Oh wonderful! I'm just spent a week in the company of someone who is an expert in bird photography, almost many other things.
Ray: I am in awe of folks who know how to shoot birds well, Alan.
You can sense the L plates Ray
Ray: It did seem a bit tentative, Bill...this is a Stork rookery, so there are lots of juveniles about.
Great shots, Ray - your are lucky to have such birds around.
Ray: The Open-beak Storks are very common around out Village, Tom, and are useful to us rice farmers as they feed on the snails that feed on our young rice plants.
