    Looks more like a heron to me. That’s a damn big beak for a stilt…. and the legs look pretty robust too……but what would a mere botanist know?

    You’re right. It even comes from my ‘Pied Heron’ album. Good catch. And clearly a sign I need to imbibe my espressos before I make a post, not after…

    To be honest, by Friday morning, that level of planning and foresight is beyond me… :)

    Jeez, Chthoniid – for a minute I thought you may have been one of the infamous ‘party of 4′ who upset the waiter in Hanmer Springs…. :D

    I love the feeling of walking barefoot and feeling the soft, wet redbaiter ooze up between my toes… :-)

    Clearly a sign that despite all of the pretentious twattery, you really don’t have a clue what you’re talking about.
