Hawaiian Stilts on golden pond

Hawaiian Stilts in a pond at Kaloko-Honokahau Park

My final post in response to this month’s Becky’s Squares challenge theme of ‘Odd.’ See more responses here.

The stilts are odd enough in themselves, with their pink legs and long beaks, but it was the lighting in this image that got my attention. The sun was sinking and the shadows lengthening. But the distinctive lighting in this photo was due to the reflection from a cream-colored trailer parked beside the pond!

      Yes. I think maybe I should have also run a wider shot which showed how this square of light on the water differed from its surrounds. Oh well, next time!

      Thanks. I like this a lot, too. I really like stilts. They’re interesting birds, and photograph well. I liked the bird on one foot, too and I was happy to see the nice reflections among the foreground grasses.
