Car window, handheld and 1/80? Result is great! This is rare case when BG is as important as main subject. Both looks excellent. Bird is sharp and in nineresting pose and BG colorfull and well composed. Lapwing is rare guest on TN.

This one has dancing patterns...it is a lively shot Nick...I shall write you privately as this is a super nice and quite different angle. You seem to be broadening your horizons.

You were lucky to see this Vanellus and you had the good reaction! Beside the fact the bird is beautiful I like the natural environment in which it is shown very much.

What a clear shot of a very cute bird and so nice scenery. I like transparency of the image. Clean rich colours and delicate lighting. Grass-flower canvas is perfect and details and sharpens of the bird image as well as its exposure are spot on. Bravo. Well done.

This Lapwing has such a graceful look. I love the crest and the nice patterns of the wings. Wonderful details of the face, wings and plummage. Lovely natural colors and a beautiful setting .

What a splendid capture of the Lapwing in a lovely pose amongst the Heather! Excellent focus, great sharpness and beautiful colours! It's really hard to get close to them so you did very well from the car window!
Many thanks, Ulla

Lost between the flowers. It seems like this little lapwing stopped for a moment to smell the flowers (if birds can actually smell it at all). Beautiful paterns in the feathers and lovely colours. I like how it stand out against the green grass. Rehanna

Destacaría la iluminación de esta toma, que le confiere una viveza y gracia especial. El ave parece que pose para tí y la enfocaste de manera precisa. Preciosa.
Saludos Nicholas: Josep Ignasi.

I have seen these at the London Wetlands Centre but this is a nicer setting with the wonderful field of flowers and green grass. Nicely framed and excellent quality for a grab shot out os a window!
