I have never seen a lark and I think those birds are fantastic. You are my neighbour Rick today and I really like looking at this small bird trying to feed itself on the upper shelf, as you say. I like the seedy plants, the bird trying to reach the top and the long shadow in the snow. Thank you!

a fine picture of the beautiful bird.
Only nit is the snow could be whiter (white Balance), otherwise it really good.
Well composed with good POV and DOF.

great details of the birdnice colours
Hi Rick. I really like the scene, especially the angle of the bird looking up. It fits well with the title "Top Shelf". I hope you don't mind a workshop to brighten the image a bit.
Take care, and thanks for sharing!

Very nice shot! I like the composition and background. Also very good details!
Thanks for sharing.Best regards.
Lovely capture of the Horned Lark, a bird that we saw here for the first time as a rare visitor only some weeks ago! It looks very cute here looking up at the seeds. Excellent sharpness and colours and a lovely composition.
TFS and all the best wishes, Ulla

This is great!
This searching for seeds at the top of the plant seems to be Horned Lark behavior! You got closer to show this than I did though. The POV, lighting and details are excellent in a nicely composed image.
Thanks for sharing this MF,

An adorable shot of this Horned Lark with the yearning expression on his face. I don't think I have ever seen this bird before. I love the composition with the weeds in descending order by height. All that snow is STILL on the ground???

this sure is an attractive photo you have uploaded today and I rather like it.The dried plants look very familiar to me and I should know their name but at this moment it escapes me.I have yet to encounter a horned lark in my travels but I have seen those little buntings and have tried in vain to get good captures of them,it seems all you have to do is move your little finger and off the buntings go like a shot.This photo has a nice and mellow light working well to show the colour and details of the lark but it does look maybe more subdued than need be,but that is just a subjective thing.The workshops look good as well.Thanks,Rick for showing us yet another wonderful little bird that calls Alberta home.
