take off

This illustrates what I was saying in the last post about the Stilts looking awkward when they fly.

The photo sort of has an optical illusion quality to it because of the water plants in the top of the frame. It looks like that is the ground and I flipped the photo upside down.  Or something.  It does make it a bit strange.

Once these birds are in the air and on the move they have no trouble flying, and look agile as they zip past you.  They are fast enough that I have had trouble getting good in-flight photos of them.
