Pied Stilts, Lake Okaro.

Lake Okaro is a lovely quiet stretch of water near Rotorua on North Island, New Zealand. There was a small flock of Pied Stilts feeding in a small bay. They were disturbed by the slightest movement so I had to wait quietly for them to return. I made these flight studies of some of the birds with the aim of composing a painting. The three left hand birds flew on by the two on the right were preparing to settle in the shallows.

Hello all - I'm a recently registered participant on your messageboard so I would say I would do best to say a few things about myself. Erm... I'm 27 years of age, a man, plus I study physics at my college. I sincerely can't wait speaking with you folks. Farewell for now
