Lives in the zones desert. To make drink their youngs , the parents soak their feathers like a sponge and fly back to the small birds which recover the water contained in the plumage.

Hello Christian,
Fine clear shot of the male Namaqua Sandgrouse. You must have come very close to take such a good shot with a 50 mm lens!
TFS it,

That's really brilliant, what a beautiful bird you've shot! Excellent detail and colour of the plumage. Perhaps cropped a bit to tight.
Thanks, Ulla

Hello Christian,

What a wonderful picture of this very nice bird! I like the position of the bird and your pov. The only thing is that IMO, you cropped the bird a little too much. You mastered perfectly the exposition and we can see a lot of details! Great picture and TFS,


Great shot. I love everything about it.
