An enormous colony of storks seem unconcerned by a drone which hovers around them as they nest until their chicks are old enough to fly.  Hundreds of Asian Open Bill Storks took over a pair of 'rain trees' in Shibganj Upazila, Bangladesh.<br />
<br />
The extraordinary flock of birds, which had built their nests all over the 25ft tall Samanea saman trees, appeared remarkably unperturbed as the drone flew little more than 10ft from them.  Given how many there were, photographer Abdul Momin admitted he was concerned about shooting them up so close.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
