|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
The Grey Wagtail (Motacilla cinerea) is a small member of the wagtail family, Motacillidae. The species looks similar to the Yellow Wagtail but has the yellow on its underside restricted to the throat and vent. Breeding males have a black throat. The species is widely distributed, with several populations breeding in Europe and Asia and migrating to tropical regions in Asia and Africa. They are usually seen on open marshy ground or meadows where they walk solitarily or in pairs along the ground, capturing insects that are disturbed. Like other wagtails, they frequently wag their tail and fly low with undulations and they have a sharp call that is often given in flight.

What a gorgeous bird, in a wonderful pose against the clear blue sky. The sharpness of the colours and details of the plumage is so pleasant to look at. I just love the natural sunlight in the image as it brings out the beautiful, bright colours of the Wagtail's feathers to the best. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
Très belle valorisation du sujet sous un excellent angle de prise de vue permettant une formidable opposition de couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
Ciao Jose. Beautiful colours and contrast from the low POV. Lovely compo.
