Oh no ! this is not a Robert De Niro Meryl Streep movie review, i don't review any movies because i am not qualified and honestly, i don't understand half the movies i watch. This is about the painted storks falling in love.
Why are they called painted storks ?
Looks like some drunk artist lost his palate and tried his brush strokes on the stork.
Willie asked his mother, Hey mom, where did i come from ?
A stork brought you my dear,
and stop scribling on the walls will ya ??
After 50 years he realised looking in the mirror that his mom was telling the truth afterall.
Here's a scene from Mid Summer Night's Dream he scribbled on the wall.
They seem to argue and debate a lot. Its such a joy to watch them in action. i sit there for hours and observe them. Some are philosophers just stand there and brood.
Four heads better than one ?
They are coming up with a theory.
Tall, elegant and incredibly graceful birds, and very very funny too.
No they are not illegal immigrants, they are Indian citizens actually, they were all born here in India, No passport, and they don't need a visa. They come here again flying 8000 miles to fall in love.
To make babies.
But the chicks hardly look like their parents. Why and how i'll tell you in the next post. This is getting too long.
hope you don't mind.
i know you don't mind
Its not easy falling in love, The female is quite demanding, you have to impress her with your flying skills
No, this is not a joke, this is a fact.
How about a full throttle just inches above water ?
No, i am not impressed. You were well above three feet. How about a 360 degree spin ?
Oh thats unfair my dear ! How about a ballet ?
Ok i'll take that, show me your talent.
Not bad, not bad ! lets see some more.
how about a break dance ?
mmmmm...... i am not sure i'd like that. Any way lets see what you've got.
Here you go !
Here HERE !!
i never thought you could do that, i am impressed
oh ! what a relief !
do we get married then ?
Yes my dear !
Oh the mating is so magical.
i was moved to tears by the display of love and affection for each other. Completely unaware of the surroundings, under the blue sky, Love in all its tenderness and purity, nothing else existed for them, they were on a journey in to ecstasy.
This is pure magic and romance.
This is the glory of nature.
Wild and beautiful.
oh i love you !
i love you too dear,
i am going to lay eggs and have chicks, we have to build a nest for them, go get some sticks and twigs,
hurry up we've only got 2 months.
Don't just stand there
i am delirious my darling ! i want to sing a song
Oh No not here ! Get going , Hurry up
our friend happily breaks into a song
Wait wait, you can sing on your way up
but don't sing on your way back
Why my dear ?
You'd be having a twig in your mouth you dummy.
And our friend takes off, singing a song
And returns with a twig in his mouth
Ah look at him, dragging the twig through water
This is mischief.
Very irresponsible chapee
And here, no arguements no debate, they choose the place where they would build their nest together.
please pray for the safety of their chicks, please pray for good weather, please pray for their safe journey back to where they came from.
They have a long way to go.
