Remember this handsome fellow? Remember how I wanted to see the babies, yellow cotton balls on stilts? Well that didn’t happen.
But, we pulled into a boat landing and were greeted by two young Killdeer. They were less than half the size of the adult. They are quick little boogers but you should be able to see the second ones’ butt on the right hand side.
They kept running along the short shore, back and forth and back and forth.
Now, picture me with my long lens going back and forth, trying to keep up with them. I’m sure it was a funny sight! Mama was in the air nearby but she never tried to attack me.
He searched for a way to get away. He looked at the water momentarily, then went back to his back and forth running. Isn't that the cutest fuzzy butt?!
He thought about running between my legs but decided against it.
Then he asked nicely to pass, so of course I let him.
He did pause and pose long enough for one decent shot. I thanked him for his time and off he sprinted.
I whistled at his long sexy legs as he trotted past.
