[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Crested Lark, Galerida cristata, breeds across most of temperate Eurasia from Portugal to northeast China and eastern India, and in Africa south to Niger. It is non-migratory, and the sedentary nature of this species is illustrated by the fact that it is only a very rare vagrant to Great Britain, despite breeding as close as northern France.

This is a common bird of dry open country and cultivation. It nests on the ground, laying two or three eggs. Its food is weed seeds and insects, the latter especially in the breeding season.

Buna Andreea
O fotografie perfecta. Poate putin mai lumioasa ar fi trebuit e foarte bine si asa. BG bine ales si detalii bune ale penajului.
Mai asteptam.

Hello Andreea, nice picture of a Crested lark. Very good DOF here to keep the bird in sharp focus. Good lighting as well. Wish the background color was little contrasting.

Buna Andreea
Frumos ai capturat aceasta pasare, pe care de obicei eu am vazut-o la noi numai iarna. Imi place postura, parca gata-gata sa isi ia zborul. Frumos.

Buna Andreea !
Frumoasa captura.
Ai avut mare noroc ca a stat pasarica la sedinta ta de foto !
De obicei abia reusesti sa le vezi, dar sa le si pozezi!
Sa ai o zi frumoasa,
Adrian

Hi Sandu. This is a good close up of the Lark. Which you have taken with fine detail and natural colours. A like the low POV so we can see the whole of the bird. Well done tFS.
Nick..
