    Even birds have their awkward moments and this has to be one of the best...

    Well captured Chris. Not the most elegant pose.

    I would agree with Peter, good capture...the pose brought a bit of a chuckle even.

    MChris,

    I like the shot, but as a learning birder I have learned that unusual as this pose may seem it is one that shows off the birds flying prowess.

    It is a shot that most definitely does not promote this bird's prowness as a flyer in any way, shape or form..that's why I think it is so funny. It wasn't meant to be a serious shot.

    On the other hand, landing like that prevents it from pushing its bill up to his eyeballs in the mud...
