Winged Jewel : Black Winged Stilt

 "Black Winged Stilt" (Wiki) is one of our favourite birds because of its long  pink legs. This bird is usually found near water bodies. Though it has a reputation of being shy, this time it seemed very friendly and gave us an opportunity to captures its various moods.
