Very nice indeed, wagtails do lend themselves to black and white. One of my favourite birds too!

What a transformation ,really like these multiple posture/movement studies.

Would like to see more of this approach in guide books,the true mannerisms of birds are very difficult to portray in just a single picture.

Little auks on a lawn - now that is a good record - and I love the lower right hand bird, wing raising. It's really well done, Arthur.
