Pied Wagtail (Motacilla alba)

By teocali
A Pied Wagtail (Motacilla alba), caught foraging for insects on our roof yesterday. they seem to like Hornets but I haven't as yet managed to catch one with a Hornet in its beak - they are so quick!

Many thanks for your comments on my last upload - always very much appreciated Smile

Send them over here, Sylvia, we are inundated with hornets, and this summer I actually got stung by one, a VERY painful experience Sad. A grand capture, perfectly exposed. Carol

Don't see too many Pied Wagtail photos on here, which is a shame as your excellent capture shows it to be a beautiful bird.

Very well exposed and capturing good detail in the white plumage, and I like the determined stepping out posture.

Excellent capture Sylvia and great eye contact. Exposure is spot on especially with a looking upwards shot
