Artist's Description

This Black-Winged Stilt (Himantopus leucocephalus) was captured at the Healseville Wildlife Sanctury, which is located in Victoria, Australia.

Camera Olympus E-30, Focal length 150.0mm,
Shutter speed 1/250s, f/5.6, ISO 800.

These stilts live on inland lakes and swamps, yet they can barely swim ! instead they wade about on long spindly legs (longer, relative to body size, than any bird’s, other than flamingo’s, snapping up aquatic insects. After rain they nest in muddy depressions, crowded together at the water’s edge. Swooping and wheeling, they team up to repel predators
