The Asian woolly-necked stork or Asian woollyneck is a species of large wading bird in the stork family. It is a medium-sized stork at 75–92 cm tall. The iris is deep crimson or wine-red. The stork is glistening black overall with a black “skull cap”, a downy white neck which gives it its name. The lower belly and under-tail coverts are white, standing out from the rest of the dark colored plumage.
Here is a the woolly-necked stork gazing at its reflection while searching for food in Gir National Park.

Jenny Lake is one of the most visited areas in Grand Teton National Park. Tucked away at the base of the Teton Range, it is considered the focal point of Grand Teton’s National Park, Jenny Lake is home to numerous hiking trails, scenic boat rides and major climbing routes that must be seen to be believed. As you might expect, many of the things to do in Jenny Lake mainly focus upon the area’s natural beauty.
While the reflections of the Teton are hazy, the water at the shore is crystal clear.
Gentle ripples distort the reflections of this Trumpeter Swan at Swan Lake Iris Gardens, Sumter, SC.
Trumpeter Swans are our biggest native waterfowl, stretching to 6 feet in length and weighing more than 25 pounds – almost twice as massive as a Tundra Swan. Getting airborne requires a lumbering takeoff along a 100-yard runway.
Glass provides a wonderful mirror to create unusual reflections. The first image is of reflections on glass from the sun shining on another building. The second image depicts reflections of architectural marvels of the Getty Museum in Los Angeles.
The wonderful thing about using reflections when taking photos is that they can completely alter the image from something fairly straightforward to something richer or abstract or otherwise more artistic. Here is a reflection of the landscape at sunset in a small body of water.
In reflection photography, using water, windows, mirrors or any sort of reflective surface can change an image into a work of art. Here the shine of an antique car and its curved surfaces and wheel cap create interesting reflections.
Reflection photography, also referred to as mirror photography, is when you use reflective surfaces to create an artistic echo of a scene. Here are reflections of trees on a lake creating a Monet-like painting effect. The red kayak adds to the scene.
Color has a significant impact on our perceptions, emotions and physicality. Incorporating the color red into photography denotes passion and bold emotion. Because it commands our attention, red brings text and subjects to the central focus of an image. Will be posting this week images with red as a predominant color to attract attention.
Here is an image of abstract reflections on water.
