Black-winged Stilt XXX

This interesting action took place in the middle of the swamp, quite far away from the photographer and only lasted a few seconds. I was observant enough to detect that something unusual was going on and the camera was good enough to take some 20-25 images and document the scene.
And the image below shows how the babies will look like if they survive past the egg stage.

  3. Thank you, Denis!
    I was very excited about it when I saw and photographed it, but then I hesitated for a while whether to publish the photos or not.

    Thanks for the comments, Mick and Dave! Much appreciated!
