Lesser Adjutant Stork.

Last December when we were visiting our family in India(Assam) we were driving down a stretch in Nagaon when we spotted this Lesser Adjutant Stork .
We parked the car to get a few shots.
When we later downloaded the images we were pleasantly surprised to find that the Lesser Adjutant Stork was actually devouing a snake...
Do check out more birds at http://pineriverreview.blogspot.com/. Enjoy and have a great Wednesday!
