Pied Stilt.

By Gecko  
I visited the local "made made wetlands" today. I used the digital zoom to capture this as I was some distance away. I was delighted to see the result, the background is reflections from the trees surrounding the lake, and there was a slight breeze blowing.
All suggestions and criticisms will be gratefully accepted. Pam

Although slightly busy; the picture offers peace. The bird stands out well, and altogether this lovely composition would make an abstract painting. I really enjoyed it. Has a mystic factor.

This is a wonderful capture with the refelection being a bonus. Amazing what you can do with a so called simple point and shoot camera.
Was wondering about the date posted so went to your profile and found you're on the move again, happy landings!
