Red Wattled Lapwing at Bandipur
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
A picture of the Red Wattled Lapwing,Photographed at Bandipur National Park.A handheld shot.
Species: V. indicus
The Red-wattled Lapwing breeds from West Asia (Iraq, SW Iran, the Arabian/Persian Gulf) eastwards across South Asia (Baluchistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, the entire Indian subcontinent up to Kanyakumari and up to 1800m in Kashmir/Nepal), with the related species Burmese Red-wattled Lapwing further east in Southeast Asia. May migrate altitudinally in spring and autumn and spreads out widely in the monsoons on creation of requisite habitats, but by and large the populations are resident.
This species is declining in its western range, but is abundant in much of South Asia, being seen at almost any wetland habitat in its range.

This is a real beautiful capture and lapwings themselves strike such a wonderful pose with that leg bend a wee bit when they stand.. LOvely lights , sharpness and contrasts. THE Bg is superb and lends a great addition to this composition.
Very well done.
TFS & Cheers
