Weekly Photo Challenge – Growth
These white storks arrive in Selçuk each year in March, and after raising their young here, the family flies back to South Africa in September. I use the term ‘fly’ but am told that these storks are masters at catching thermal air currents rising up from land mass. They ride these ‘waves’ and rarely actually flap their wings during their 4,000 mile migration. Local Turks say that if you see a stork on your first trip to Turkey you are to live in happines the rest of your life!
