Danger in the air - Dotterel

By drbird  
One of my favourite birds the Dotterel, here in a typical pose when they spot danger in the air like in this case a crow. It is such a nice species to work with. Only little fear of humans and quite curious on top of it this female kept her distance and didnít come closer than 50 cm but I had birds which touched the lens. A species where the female is more colourful than the male counterpart, and the male takes over the responsibility of brooding and rearing the young.
