[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Red-wattled Lapwing (Vanellus indicus) is a lapwing or large plover, a wader in the family Charadriidae. It has characteristic loud alarm calls which are variously rendered as did he do it or pity to do it leading to colloquial names like the did-he-do-it bird.Usually seen in pairs or small groups not far from water but may form large flocks in the non-breeding season (winter).

Great capture of the Lapwing with its feathers ruffled, Foozi.
The POV from the rear is just great and the DOF is also marvellous.

Hi Foozi,
Nice shot,the bodies and heads of a beautiful bird are nice in focus. Amazing colors,good composition and sharpness details and again with perfect point of view.

Hi Foozi,
How to make a good photograph from a baackside PoV? Always a difficult task. But you managed to solve the problem. From a PoV like this eye contact is essential - and the bird seems like posing for you. Great sharpness and details on the plumage (with a very little, slightly oversharpened part in the middle), optimal DoF to receive a mish-mashed background. Good light management and colors also. Masterful job overall. Congratulations!
Best regards, László
