Alfaiate,Pied Avocet (Recurvirostra avosetta)

Tejo Estuary Nature Reserve.

Photo taken from a birdwatch shelt in the EVOA Project ( http://www.evoa.pt/index.php?lang=PT ).This project placed in the heart of the reserve includes a wood building and a large area with three major lagoons protected with physical barriers only accessed on the shelters. I must say that the big difference between watch and photograph is the more easy going watch... :)
This day there was a large Pied Avocet flock in one of the lagoons. I choose this pic to share because the interesting pattern of this beautiful bird...

First time I see the back of a avosetta with outstretched wings, looks like a little angel ... Very interesting perspective captured beautiful reflection in the water. Congratulations!
