They are exceedingly nice.
I don't like those pests (here) but they sure are beautiful birds and these show why.
One of the most interesting coats a bird could have

that's excellent and such a beautiful pose.
Love the clarity and the details
Curious how you get those into a photo? Here you can't get within a bulls roar of a Skylark. They are paddock feeders/ dwellers and don't tolerate humans at all.
Never seen one so closeup.

Agree with Richard. Excellent job on this one. You posted a front on Skylark photo 15-MAR with the crest raised. Also superb.


Keep 'em flying,

Local knowledge Richard been using this same spot for years ,it’s a car lay by that has large rocks to stop vehicles going off road over the common . It also has the advantage of the sun behind you.
So pull up to about 8 to 10 feet away from the rocks hop out and put down a handful of mealworms in the crevices . These are replenished by all the togs that visit the spot . .
Then get back in the car set up camera and wait . You do have to fire off a lot of shots when the skylarks come in as they don5 hang about for long .
The main advantage is you can set up your own scenarios .. now limited to going out due to this bloody virus it’s getting really serious here

Thanks for explanation.
Here, on our farm, they are only seen in pairs and then when startled they fly off about 50 to 100 yards and settle.
They're the most timid and flighty of birds about. Well up with the very best.
You're priveleged for sure.
Mm. Really is a lovely photo.
