  2. You and your wife had a lovely Sunday picnic with a ‘smorgasbord’ of beautiful feathered friends! Loved the Stilt pictures in particular, and the video of the pestered parent 🙂 I wish you a wonderful and blessed week.

    • Thanks Tiny, yes we did enjoy our bird picnic and on reflection it was a lovely restful afternoon after a very stressful week. I see so many bird parents pestered by hungry youngsters, and the outcome is often the same, the parents can only satisfy them to a point, and the parent leaves for a break away. Have a wonderful week😊

    • Thanks Chris, my wife wouldn’t agree that I was patient 😀 But it does take some waiting to capture the bird in the ideal position. I am striving to get the perfect reflection, where the photo can be inverted and look the same either way ‘round. I’ Close at times but not enough as yet. Enjoy your week.

  3. I can totally understand your love of the long-legged Stilts, Ashley! Wonderful reflections and I enjoyed watching their video. That cross-leg reflection is pretty awesome too! My goodness, I feel so sorry for the Pied-Cormorant parent, what chaos at feeding and begging. ‘Bout time for those teenagers to learn to fly and feed themselves, lol. Beautiful photos and great post, Ashley! Have a wonderful, joyous week!

    • Thanks Kathie, I am still looking for the photo where the reflection is as good as the the image of the bird itself, so it is difficult to tell the difference.

  4. Beautiful reflection shots of the stilts. The black necked stilt here is one of my favorite shorebirds as well. So graceful and elegant. Good luck with your future plans. I think you would be a fabulous bird guide!

    • Thanks Kelly, I really need the career change, looking forward to something more outdoorsy, birding for work sounds a great idea:-) I am still trying to find a reflection I can invert and one would have trouble knowing it is inverted, it is my reflection challenge. Have a wonderful weekend!
