[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was headed home after checking our crops one evening , and saw some stilt chicks . I stopped , and was shotting the chicks when this guy started playing lame to catch my attention . My daughter was with me , and was worried the bird was hurt . It took a bit to explain what it was really doing to a two year old , but I think she's got it now .

Hi Kevin,
this is a very good looking capture of this pink legged stilt.You have good colour,details and focus with this tall little bird.Tfs.


HI Kevin,
Good shot and good story.
You capture the bird nicely with super colors and details.
TFS, Mario.

Excellent shot and really should go in my favorites bag, but it is almost full enough. Perhaps I will come back and mark it...Very nice...


This is a gorgeous shot of the "Stilt" you have there!
Is it by chance the "Black-winged Stilt" [Himantopus himantopus ] ???

""They have long pink legs, a long thin black bill and are mainly white with a dark cap and a dark back.""

I gather this bird is in the avocet - stilt family... ;)

I would only do a small crop on top and at bottom to focus more on the bird... Maybe I will get around to that too ;)

TFS Kevin! Great shot! And I am glad your daughter is learning!
