Zoltán Gergely Nagy - Elegant wader
This magnificent bird was right in front of me a few years ago, as I was hiding in my small camouflaged tent. I wanted to photograph the beauty and elegance of black-winged stilts in the context of some small temporary pools, where I managed to observe them feeding. Luck was on my side, in fact I had never imagined that they wouldn’t even give notice of me, and let me in their private lives from only an arms reach away.
I think there is some magic in being hidden and experiencing wildlife from really up close.
