Whilst on a game drive in South Luangwa, we started exploring the little tracks as the predators were eluding us. We came across a small watering hole where there was a pair of very elegant saddle billed storks. You can tell the difference between males and females quite easily: the male has a black eye, the female has a yellow eye. On the picture is a male.
