An outstanding image of this very beautiful bird which has an unusual bony protrusion coming from it's breast. I like the way you were able to post the inset which points out this unique part of it's anatomy.
The contrasting black and white plumage is accented by it's bright red eye. Wonderful low POV and showing exceptional detail and gorgeous coloration. Very informative notes. Superb shot!!

very interesting and very beautiful lapwing. Spur-winged Plover or Lapwing (Vanellus (Haplopterus) spinus) present in here, even if in our campus. It is similar to this with exception colors. It has spur at same point of wings, but shorter. True spur-winged must be yours. You greatly captured and presented. Thanks for sharing. All the best

Very interesting posting! You show something very special which seems to be unique in the bird-world. As usual excellent presentation and a most funny expression of the bird here.
Thanks too for your appreciation of my last picture. I was aware of some lacks, you are right for that. But most probably no new Lens for Christmas, they are quite expensiv!

Very interesting photo of a blacksmith plover who needs genetic reconstruction. :-) Wonderful lights, excellent white balance, perfect sharpness etc. - the usual stuff while commenting your photos and what you're probably tired of. :-) Amazing image with not only great composition, but with an exceptional add-on also. Truly great job! Bravo!
Have a great and prosperous new year, friendly regards, László
