A pied stilt in flight

Paul from Levin

Yes, that really is a pied stilt up there. (I'd put a smiley face with dark glasses here if I could.)
TIME TO COME CLEAN. That cliff face is just a piece of blue gum firewood. When I had split the wood the texture of the exposed surface attracted my attention so out came the camera and some artificial lighting. The stilt then added to enhance the illusion.

I'm just curious, is it only my posts getting taken down that are relating to 5G or are other people finding this too?? Thanks
