Thanks my first win since 2009 Wild Wonders of Europe I was 4th in the grand finale. :-)

Behind The Lens

Location
I was coming back from a session with floating hide. I saw the full moon and the stork standing its nest, I immediately stop the car, took out my tripod and I took those photos.
Time
It was about 10 p.m. and there was a "super" moon shining bright in the clear skies.
Lighting
The full moon back-light, made this stork's silhouette special.
Equipment
I use my Canon EOS7D with EF 300mm f2.8L IS USM and 2x TC, I put my camera on the tripod and used cable remote control to reduce the vibrations and also turn on mirror lock-up function in the camera settings.
Inspiration
I was looking for a different way to capture the "Super" moon and when I saw the white stork standing there I decided to try.
Editing
Just simple adjustment, which I use regularly post-processing my photography.
In my camera bag
Canon EOS7D with EF 300mm f2.8L IS USM and 2x TC, 1,4x TC, Canon EF 17-40mm f4L USM.
Feedback
Next time I try to take similar photo I wound use wider aperture to get more details from the moon in the background.
