Wow! That 600mm really got you nice and close to the lark.
High and low registers shows nice lighting throughout the subject
and the snowy mini-mountain. :)

Outstanding quality and beautifulness of the picture taken with help of extra-class equipment. Amazing bird, terrific details and perfect colour rendition. I also impressed with exposure of the snow and composition of the shot. Bravo. Well done.

Hi Rick this is a pleasing shot of the lark which at first glance I thought was a Killdeer in the gallery thumbnails but on closer inspection I know not to be the case,the three black bands had me fooled for a second.I must say that this image has very accurate colour and such a fine light on it,that all your details are very sharp.I like that pale spring sky and it works hot dang to contrast with the little bird.A nice one Rick and thank you sir for sharing it with us.
Gorgeous capture indeed Rick! I love the chosen point of view and the simplicity in this frame. Unfortunately the white balance on your magnificent camera was set incorrectly and heavy Cyan/blue cast is dominating to a degree when even the vividness of the colors has been taken away. I know that you do not agree with me here, but please have a look my workshop!

Beautiful photo of this Horned Lark in nice natural colours. Maybe a bit more contrast is possible. Excellent sharpness, details and a very good POV and composition.

The Horned lark is rare in Sweden and I have naver been as close to one to enble such a fine capture as this. The POV against the blue sky is great as is the composition on the snow. Fine sharpness, DOF and natural colours too.
Thanks and have great weekend,

Beautiful species I've yet to see one here, this one at the peak of the plummage scale. I agree with the White balance remarks, but that's easy to solve in Photoshop, the basics of this image are wonderful
