Black-necked Stilt - mating ritual

After 25+ years of watching Black-necked Stilt's breeding activity, here in the Mid-South, I am still enthralled by their intricate mating ritual that is highly styilized and never varies in procedure. Today, May 10, 2008, I witnessed 8 or 9 of these shows and decided again to share a few more photos. Click on each image for descriptions and enlarge if necessary by selecting sizes under the photo.
