Black-winged stilt on a calm morning

By drbird  
First a big THANK YOU for all the awards comment and votes for the Bittern image- overwhelmed and much appreciated...Thanks.

This image is from a research project down under, Black winged stilts are so elegant and even if they were not part of the project I just couldn't resist. Laying in the mud for a couple of hours and the aperture wide open was the recipe for the image. A couple of days later my trouser and T-shirt I had on that day was just falling to pieces and the skin became blistery....Turned out the mud wasn't only dirt and water included was a lot of nasty salts...well lesson learned next time I use sleeping mat to avoid the contact

A stunning image, the Stilt is beautifully detailed within the smooth clean foreground and background. Great reflection too, amazing how the drops of water on the beak have reflected. Well worth the effort and blisters!
