This blog would certainly not be the same without my husbands wonderful photos. Yesterday morning on his drive to work he saw something - so today he took his camera, hoping he would see it again. And surely he did:

Hundreds of thousands of storks are migrating twice a year over Israel - on their way from Europe to Africa in autumn, and back from Africa to Europe in spring. We love to see them soaring high up in the sky and we get excited when they touch down near us for a rest in the meadows.

Liebe Yael,

Your husband's photos are always amazing! If the story is true that the stork brings the baby, that's a lot of babies. Lol!

Yes,how gorgeous to see those storks soaring together high up into the sky! It is a long distance to migrate from Africa to Europe.
Be safe storks!!
