[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here is another lapwing from Tobago.
I saw this bird early in the morning - the grass was stil wet - and captured him a couple of times.
For more detailed info about this bird, I refer to a previous posting.

Wow, that is really beautiful - dead sharp, wonderful plumage and colours!
Thanks, Ulla

Hi Zeno
Looking at the thumbnail your photo didn't look that impressive but you have captured the irredecent colours of this lapwing nicely.
Nice shot, regards

Ha Zeno,
de kieviten familie is erg gaaf mede omdat hun houding zo herkenbaar is.
Zo zou dit zomaar een europese kievit kunnen zijn die door de verfwinkel is gelopen. Mooie plaat met reflecties op de tertials en vleugelboeg.
Groeten, Jacob

Hi Zeno

Great job capturing this very interesting bird.
Excellent POV, great DOF and super sharp details. I love the way you managed to capture even the small details such as the water drops of the greass. Also very nice are the colors, light and framing.

Bravo and TFS

Good simple capture.
Bird is a beauty.

Another beautiful one, Zeno.
What a great POV to catch this one in. It shows off so well that beautiful plumage . I love that metallic green in there, and the subtle variations of colors on the wings.
Excellent sharpness and exposure.
Great shot and TFS. : )

Hi Zeno,Superb bird shot!Congratulations.TFS.Hilmi

Hi Zeno,
A very nice shot on this Southern Lapwing. He has struck a very elegant pose for you here. Nice colors and sharp detail. You can even see the drops of dew in the grass in great detail. Nice one!

Hi Zeno!
Getting up early in the morning turnes out to be very rewarding most of the time. This excellent shot of the Southern Lapwing is very much different from the previous one: the pose, light and background are all different. Excellent sharpness, contrast and exposure, low POV resulting in good background blur. Congratulations,
