Black-necked Stilt
Photographer: Ron Bielefeld
Location: East Central Florida
I had found a black-necked stilt nest the evening before and returned the next morning to see if I could get some images of the adults interacting with the nest. I was not sure if there were any eggs in the nest or not, but as it turned out the female had a full compliment of 4 eggs in the nest. I waited until she needed the turn the eggs to capture this image. I captured the moment when the turned egg was the most visible.
