Beauties Steve! With those gigantic feet it looks so odd on that skinny little stem.

Must be incredibly strong feet to climb like that, great set!

Thanks, their ability to balance is both their strength and weakness. They fall quite a bit but climb right back up. Their feet really aren't the best for wrapping around something so narrow but they manage.

Thanks Craig. Those long toes are perfect for walking across broad leaf water plants without sinking.

Really well done. Lots of Wood Stork activity going on there now. More than I can remember in prior years. Young starting to fledge.

I don't know how I missed these, but they're great, Steve. I was amazed, when I was able to photograph a sora recently, how incredibly long their toes were. I probably could walk on water too if mine were proportionately as long.

Another fantastic series Steve! The color, feather detail and tack sharpness are top notch!

Thanks. I photographed the Wood Stork when I was there, plenty of chicks in the nests and others still building and laying. I hope to get back there next spring.

Thanks Al. The Soras, Mooorhens and Coots sure have some big dogs. I don't know how they keep from tripping on their own feet.

Thanks very much Lester. It's a wonder they don't fall more than they do, practice makes (near) perfect. :)
