Thats a nice shot. Take off?

Thanks Neal. It was diving for tiny fish. Sitting on water it would suddenly rear up and yes take off then dive. Happened quickly.

Another stunning capture. Particularly love the first one.

Black-necked stilt

Very nicely photographed
Composition is excellent and shows the stilt off beautifully against the surrounding landscape.

These are fun to see; and you captured some of the iridescence well, too.

Thats a stunning capture.

Thank you, the amazing thing is that it was with my old 5D in single shot mode. I was watching the hummingbird duel with the bees for about an hour and shot about 200 shots, this was the best one.

Rather be lucky than good ROFL

I do like the shot
