Black-Necked Stilt

This little foot-high Black-Necked Stilt is keeping a weary eye on me, but it didn't stop him from keeping up his morning meal in the road-side ditch. As awkward as he seems, they are very elegant bird. The long legs seem to give them a better vantage point to check out the shallow water.

Oh what a beautiful bird. You've captured it fabulously. So elegant, as Blognote said.


Apologies for lack of comments recently. I'm in America. But slowly, hope to start commenting a little more regularly.

I do visit and I do comment and I was here. I did look at your picture(s) and I did read what you wrote about them. I could say how great you are and how beautiful your work is but alas I would soon run out of things to say on the next blog I visited, so I just left this to prove I stopped and said a few words on Sunday.

My Rheumatoid Arthritis hurts so I am using the same message for all.
