The first thought I had upon viewing this lovely image was that the exposure is perfect – gorgeous detail in both the whites and blacks. :D

Very nice flight shot. Do these guys constantly chatter while flying like our Black-necked Stilts do?

Such a beauty- lovely detail and contrasts. Love that bright eye and the stretched out feet.

Such beautiful and elegant birds! Captured superbly, KK. Perfect exposure for the black and white plumage.

Thanks, EJ!
The Black-winged Stilt does chatter while flying too.
I've quite a few inflight shots with open bill ...
