That must be quite a sight. Wonder if the birthrate in that region is higher in February?!

I don't know if I'm more impressed by the nests or the masonry.

tristan said...

you rarely see one without the other ... storks are ubiquitous ... this rough masonry is typical in most of spain and they've been doing it for thousands of years ... not far away you can see the roman road in the pass above arenas de san pedro, and the amazing aqueduct remains intact at segovia

You have had a fruitful visit to Spain, judging by these photograph which make long for Old Casille. I used to know a man called Lazero.

hey joe, i was in spain for less than sixty hours and the photographs only represent a fraction of the visual and social and spiritual riches i encountered
