Lovely shot of the Snow Bunting, Sylvia: it looks from this shot as if she'd be well camouflaged there amongst the pebbles.

Normally in birds the male is the prettier but there is not much difference in these, another wonderful image. - gary

A great capture and for the life of me cannot work out why this hasn't had more attention. Perhaps you need to click on more people to get votes back because sharp photos do not do as well as blurred ones over cropped on here Wink

She's a real beauty, is that some dried seaweed she is perched on?
