Default Black-necked Stilts

These birds look awkward, but interesting. Talk about needing in flight leg room. From Tuesday in Green Cay Wetlands.

I'm envious, Ed. The stilts I've seen are always just a bit too far out of range for my lens, for me to get shots this nice.
Really good job.

I always think they are cute, I've always liked them. So these are young ones, is that why they seem more brownish? The only ones I've seen are much blacker.

This is a more mature Stilt.

Beautiful lighting, smooth water, great feather detail and wonderful reflections. Hard to pick a favorite, but will go with the last one.
