|The first picture from Danube Delta. |
The Black-winged Stilt (Himantopus himantopus) is a large wader in the avocet and stilt family, Recurvirostridae. Adults are 33-36 cm long. They have long red legs, a long thin black bill and are mainly white with a dark cap and a dark back.
The breeding habitat is marshes, shallow lakes and ponds. The nest site is a bare spot on the ground near water. These birds often nest in small groups, sometimes with avocets (wait for it !). These birds pick up their food from sand or water. They mainly eat insects and crustaceans.
Some populations are migratory and move to the ocean coasts in winter.
Hope you like this timid bird, I was surprised to see it in this moment, of course at 50-60 m distance.

Super poza pasarii. Ce sunt punctele negre de pe imagine??? La mine se vad mai multe si mai dese in partea de jos a imaginii, in jurul reflexiei...
In rest lumina excelenta si culorile perfect expuse.
The simplicity in this compo is stunning. Good detail and a wonderful reflection. I would shorten the portrait a wee
< perhaps both top and bottom > to have more "leeway" sideways.

Beautiful photo! I love the simplicity of it. The Stilt is sharp and beautiful - lovely setting - nice reflection - fantastic pose.
Foarte faina captura,exclenta reflexie.
Esti norocos ca ai ajuns in Delta,sper si eu anul asta.
m-am pregatit de vizionare, sa stii! Am inceput cu piciorongul. M-am uitat in fuga la poze, mi-au placut toate da mi-e frica sa nu ma repet. Asa ca , pe langa claritate, lumina, POV si alte chestii de care stii ca nu ma prea pricep sa le discut, o sa spun doar esenta:)).
Pentru piciorong, poza=intimitate.
