A cracker of a closeup and lovely expression ... superb work, Kim ... tfs ...
Excellent close-up of this beautiful wader.
The owner of a nearby berry field said 1000 birds. I estimated 800 birds and a user of an ornithological webpage estimated 1500 birds. The photo shows only half of one flock. There were two flocks that day.
a marvelous portrait of this lapwing, with gorgeous colors and love the way it looks at you!!! top quality, many tfs!!!
