These were taken a few weeks ago at Circle B Bar Reserve in Lakeland. The black necked stilts usually stay far away from the trails. In the past, I have only seen them way out across the marsh. For some reason on this morning, one of them was feeding very close to the trail. Right in front of the main intersection. He stayed busy not paying attention to the long line of photographers taking pictures of him. He kept getting closer and closer. I was glad it was a nice clear morning and not a ripple on the water.
