The rare Ae’o – The Hawaiian stilts are breeding in ponds right beside the roadsides in Maui. The parents to this little one are very tame as they are used to passers-by. Parking on the roadside and using my car as hide I was simply wanting to photograph the two adults from a close vantage point, without them being nervous of my presence. I didn’t realise they were parents for quite a while – not until the little one materialised out of nowhere ! what a bonus!!!
