CommentWe were on a boat tour on the Mary River, NT, which in itself was ana amazing experience. But when we rounded the bend and saw this Black-necked Stork standing on the river's edge it was quite an experience. As we passed by I was able to get an image of it looking directly at the camera. Cropping it for this competition has bought out a whole new aspect. The stunning bright eyes contrast heavily with the dark bill and the soft dark background. Keep the eyes at the top third and the bill aligned with the centre cannot help but capture the viewer's attention. This is not a bird to be messed with.
