Lark stalks photographer

Thanks to Andrew Stevenson for this photo of me lying a few feet from a Desert Lark at Green Mubazzarah last week. The bird, just in front of the black hose pipe, was initially with a striking leucistic Desert Lark which I think Keith Martin spotted before we were even off the minbus. I fear some more 'photographer in situ' shots may surface involving mud and a dairy farm!

so, was he successful? was the lark's painstaking stalking worth it? Did he catch the photographer?

nice photos!

Thanks Dale. He was almost successful - the photographer had to retreat as the lark exceeded the minimum focal distance of the lens!
