Black-necked Stilt


Viewed 9 Times

Posting a picture that follows Mike’s description of different picture types-reflections. Getting this type of shot requires some luck-still glass-like water, the proper angle-not too low, a cooperative bird, and hopefully, some action by the bird. This picture was taken of a Black-necked Stilt which tends to hang out in shallow, protected water. It feeds by constantly probing into the underlying mud with its beak. This particular bird raised its head causing a shower of water droplets to spray. I liked the heart shape of the droplets and their reflection.

I like both Black-necked Stilt pics – both are sharp and both tell a story. Can’t decide with one I like better – perhaps the one with the water drops just because you see them twice and you have stopped the action so the drops are perfectly formed.
