[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was so thrilled on Sunday when we found this cute little lapwing chic with its mother on our way to the bird hide near Mopani camp in the KNP. It was foraging for food on the low water bridge. I could have just stayed there the whole day watching it. It was quite close to our vehicle and not one bit afraid. Maybe wary in the beginning but as soon as he realized we meant him no harm he kept on searching for food with his mom close by.
Enjoy and comments are welcome.

Hello Natley,
Yes, cute and beautiful. And very well observed by you as they can be well camouflaged and I do not think I have ever seen a picture of a juvenile lapwing on here. Outstanding sharpness as usual and a sheer pleasure to view. Best wishes.

NS: Verbeel ek my of het ek jou vir 'n lang tyd nie hier gesien nie en nou lyk dit my Carl is ook al lank afwesig?

What an adorable presentation, i would be thrilled too!!! So thankful you were able to capture this and so pristine too! Great detail
