American Avocet (Recurvirostra americana) - 27Sep2015

Some folks speak of the Economy of Style.  Hemingway was a master of the economy of style.  Meaning he could use the minimal amount of words to get across a ton of meaning and substance.  The American Avocet is also a master of economy of style.  It uses a simple black and white coloration (or lack of color) in such a way that the bird is better looking than birds that have a whole palette of colors.  Of course the blue legs are pretty cool too.

So elegant, so delicate, so ........ cool.
