  1. Background sets the bird off beatifully - love the contrast of the monochromatic bird and the vivid rock.

  3. That is really lovely Trevor, beautifully posed!

    We only had a light dusting of snow the other day and sure enough in popped the Pied Wagtail, it is the only time it ever appears, I think it likes showing off its plumage against the snow :)

  4. Thanks Keith. But something is not quite right about the image...I think it needs a catchlight in the eye.

  5. Hi Stuart. See your blog is doing well. The background is somewhat unusual but it does seem to make the bird stand out more.

  6. Adrian...I am not sure about that..I think it is rather a strange photograph. Not sure if I really like it.

  7. Hi Jan

    They are a very nice bird but not the most photogenic of subjects. Maybe he knows where to get a meal when the going gets rough.
