Black-winged Stilt: the Pink-legged Yogi
One can hardly miss the Black-winged stilt’s long pink legs, which account for nearly 60 percent of their height. If given a chance I would have named them ‘Long pink-legged Stilt’!
This very long legged, ‘size zero’ wader is widely distributed across Asia, Africa, Europe and the United States. I am sure you would have seen them in plenty, in the country side.
In the picture: Unlike most water birds, stilts really test the photographers patience, unless they are standing (meditating like stance that you can see in one of the images). They move so quickly in search of food that, in most conditions it becomes almost impossible to get a clear and well composed shot.
