Interesting to see Danny say that he isn't quite comfortable with digital art conversions on birds - there is no way I could produce the stunning precision artworks that he creates either!

 These beautiful storks just lend themselves to a touch of digital art IMO.  They have the most beautiful eyes and such elegance.  :)

From an original image I captured a few years ago

Great example of how an already beautiful bird can be beautifully enhanced! Love the gorgeous background to bring out the beauty of this stork- the eye is so lovely, as is the pose. Top notch, Carol!

Great comp, and the BG color and texture is a perfect compliment to the stork.

WOW, this looks spectacular Carol. Love what you've done to this and I'm thinking a decent sized print would be in order. Superb look and work. pat yourself on the back, because I can't reach! Even better get Dave to do it ;)

In this case and seeing this, I might just try this type of work with birds Carol. It feels right. Quite the inspiration going on.

See ya.

As other have stated, this is absolutely stunning. I just love it.

Can you tell us what software programs were used?

Thanks.

Thank you Mark I really appreciate you taking the time to comment on my image. 

This was worked on a while back, and was done with Photoshop and Topaz Studios plug ins.  The main one was Topaz Impression.  I don't know if its still available - but it had some really nice effects that I loved using.

I hope this helps.
