The Lapwing ( vanellus vanellus )
I always regard this bird as having one of the most beautiful plumages of all birds. A careful study of the bird shows a myriad of soft and delicate colour variations. Caught this one recently in one of our rare sunny spells.
V2 is not quite as good as I would have wished. These birds fly very fast and usually very erratic flight and are difficult to follow so I was pleased to get even this shot.
Hope you will enjoy looking.
My grateful thanks for all c/c's on the Goldy. Particular thanksas ever, to Illi ( illiboy ) for the used award.
