This Lapwing was one of thirty birds which just happened to be closer than the rest. It was about 25 yards distance and quite content to bathe and preen in front of me. The light was good. Exposure was set at 0.0 and White Balance set to Auto. Tripod mounted. All of the images have been cropped 1x in Adobe Photoshop CS3 and two of the images have been Exposure corrected.
