Thoughts Of Flying

Thoughts Of Flying BI280893.jpg

These charming Pied Stilts were resting on a sandbank, peacefully dozing off until a solitary pelican came too close. The stilts began to march in perfect formation, as if acting as one. I couldn't help but wonder if they were actually pre-planning a take-off, or if they had a mental concept of what flight is. It made me ponder whether they were "thinking" about flying or it was just their instinctual behavior.
