Mating Stilts

Takes a good balancing act for Black-necked Stilts to mate with those extra long legs.  Just wish that they had not been facing away from me but you take what you can get.

Taken with Canon 1DX and Canon 500mm F4 IS II with 1.4x III teleconverter mounted on Skimmer ground pod with Wimberley II gimbal head

1/1,000 sec @ F10, ISO 1600, evaluative metering, +2/3 exposure compensation
