Black-necked Stilt

By billma
The Great Salt Lake in Utah is a major stop in the Canada to Mexico "international flyway," a resting or nesting place for a few hundred species of birds. There have been times that I have been able to view 10 or more species in the same view through my binoculars. This is one of my favorite pictures that I have taken to date.

I can see why this is a favourite Bill. It combines an excellent bird picture into a very elegant composition. I particularly like the way the reflection of the leg works.

I appreciate the clicks and comments. As I have had this in my file to upload I have really gotten to like something intangible about it. It seems peaceful and romantic or something.
