p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Another Go At The Black Necked Stilts


Had to have another go at the stilts. Climbed and clawed by way through grass, reeds past my waist to try to get where I could hide and hopefully get closer.
Crouched in the high grass and mud much to my delight a pair finally flew in. They did not stay long, but got a few shots off.
Then I noticed movement in water in front of me. Last shot is what was there. Made me very uneasy since I was kneeling in the muck .

I would like to get closer, but after seeing my visitor in the last shot , probably won't happen !

Your comments and suggestions are much appreciated.

Hope you enjoy.

Birdie



















Not a turtle, but a snake . I don't like snakes !

Very nice on the stilts Birdie. 2 is my pick. You don't like snakes?? They taste just like chicken. ~ Ron

Cool find (snake swimming)! And a good set overall. I also like stilts. First time I saw them in person, I realized why they make for great subjects. Lovely work Birdie.

#3 is extra fine. That snake won't hurt you; no excuse not to go back. You should set up a "blind" and sit in there. It works great and you can get a very light weight portable one. Don

Terrific set Roberta and you are really mastering these Stilt images
Cool look at the snake and I'd be glad this one was in the water and not in the saw grass with YOU!

Another wonderful set, Birdie. And the second image is a real corker! I love it!
Encountering snakes in the swamps is much like picking and eating wild mushrooms in the PNW. Unless you're a world authority on ID-ing them, leave 'em the H alone .
