I have just got back from a lovely week on the Isle of South Uist in the Outer Hebrides.

The weather was sunny but a little windy at times.

The availability of birds to photograph that you would not get close to on the mainland was fantastic.

This is a Sky Lark that sat and posed for me for all of 30 seconds, a lifetime compared to the chances I normally get.

Great capture. I know what you mean, they don't hang around long. Have a couple of images of one in my portfolio. You have caught this one in a lovely pose. Well done.

Thank you Barbara.

To see them fly straight up high into the sky is another joy of this bird.
