Watching this group of four  Black winged  Stilts ( Scientific Name  Himantopus himantopus  ) at the Pushkar Lake as the Sun set was both symbolic and beautiful.

Do notice the featured image as they fold up up one leg and tuck in their heads under their wings in perfect synchronization with the Setting Sun.

The Setting Sun gently extends a Golden Wand over the Lake at Pushkar , Rajasthan, India

The Golden Wand starts turning the quivering waters of the Lake into a Golden Hue .

The Stilts or Avocets call it a day and start  lining up on the lakeshore to sleep.

An Egret ( Scientific name Bubulcus ibis)  joins the Stilts as the Sun takes a final bow before setting over the Horizon.

Watch the lights being turned on in the City of Pushkar as Night extends its shadow over the Golden Lake.

Unlike many two legged in Urban cities across the world, these birds choose to sleep as natural light recedes and the  Sun Sets.

      1. Can you make the pics so that they open in a new window?
        As they are now, I can’t link them to the source if I write a poem, actually, it’s good to do that with all of your pics, that way, people can view them in a larger format.

      2. But then how do I give credit? I like to link to the original, if you need instructions on how to have the pics open in a new window, let me know.

      3. I’ll get back to you later then, I’m on a tablet right now.

        When I go to my computer, I’ll look up how I do the posts from there (I post both ways, computer and tablet, but it’s really complicated on a tablet).
