Pied Stilt, Blockhouse Bay

The tide is going out, and a light breeze ripples the water ever so gently. Closer inshore, the surface of the water is smooth. A pied stilt (himantopus himantopus) takes its deliberate strides through the water.

The City Daily Photo theme for June is “Tranquillity”. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants


  1. I can sit and watch water birds for ages, Paul. You have wonderful clarity in your Pied Stilt. Sure looks tranquil to me.
