A special bird with this yellow appendice under the eyes. It has a beautiful plumage and an amzing clear eye. Pleasant picture taken under the midday sunshine, with just a little shadow on the ground. Lovely three-colored background too.
Thanks and take care!

A very different Lapwing from the one we see in India, Anna.
All the same, it is a very handsome bird owing to variety of colours on it and that yellow appendage on its face.
A well managed shot in the bright mid-day light.
Thanks and regards.

What a beautiful sharp and detailed capture of this African Wattled Lapwing. Splendid colours, pose, DOF and low POV. Excellent work done here.

I hope you are fully recovered from your op.
This is a super capture of the African Wattled Lapwing. The sharpness is top and the fine OOF natural BG gives it both contrast and an insight into its habitat with the blu-green algae still sticking to its feet.
Well done, this is a top shot.
Thanks and best regards,

Hello Anna, hope you are recovering quickly from your surgery.
A beautifully marked bird with such odd looking wattles hanging from it's cheeks. It looks like it is crying long yellow tears. As always you managed to capture your subject in an attractive stance while showing exceptional detail and natural coloration.
I can see from his lower legs that he was busy searching through the green algae for food, as he left plenty on them. I have to wonder why they would choose dung to line their nest with?

Hello Anna my vriendin,
Ek glo nie jy kan ooit in jou lewe 'n slegte foto neem nie. Hierdie een is weer eens net 'n bewys daarvan. Ek was hierdie keer nie so gelukkig toe ons by die Sunsetdam was nie want daar was net te veel motors. Fantastiese foto. Geniet jou naweek.

It is a very nice bird. I like its slim legs and elegant shapes as well as yellow adornment. Surroundings are also fine and reproduced nicely. As usual your image has 3D-look. It is great. My kind regards and TFS.

Nog 'n voorbeeld van die uitstaande gehalte van jou werk en wat 'n pragtige beeld. As dit sou help sou ek ook so 'n kamera aanskaf maar ek is bevrees die fotograaf agter die kamera is netso belangrik. Ek wonder net wat jy uiteindelik met al die fantastiese foto's gaan doen, veral die van die voëls van die Kruger Wildtuin. Dit kan mos nie net eenkeer hier vertoon word nie want dit verdien baie meer erkenning. Beste groete.

The bird is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the detqails and colors of the African Wattled Lapwing. It is clear and sharp. The afternoon light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Very sharp and well exposed image of the Lapwing. The bird stands out nicely against the background. I stay next to Vaaldam and we see this bird regularly when we have a bird count.

Hi Anna this is a delightful looking bird that makes me thick of avocets and killdeer for some of the plumage detail reminds me of them and if it had a comb in additon to the yellow wattles then I would think of chickens as well-cool looking bird!You have very nice and rich saturated colour and a clear sharp focus with very little over exposed.This bird likes to walk in the water as it has green plant matter stuck to it's legs.Little details like that make photos sing and this one really does.Thank you sharing this little shorebird with us.

Very interesting bird. Our lapwing have much shorter legs, crest on its head.
