R5, 100-500, 1.4x @560mm, 1/2000s, f/11, ISO 1000, manual

Photographed during rye harvest, the Storks followed the harvester to catch mice and didn't mind the large cloud of dust. This one took off to feed its offspring.

Nice looking flight shot.
I haven't seen one in the last 61 years but vividly remember them nesting on the chimney of the thatched roof houses where I lived.

Excellent pose and background. Might be tempted to brighten the head a tad to make it pop even more.
