Pied Wagtail (Motacilla alba)

Absolutely nothing special about this image; the low light and distance from the Wagtail allowed for no detail. I simply enjoyed the composition – the bird's sweet little strut as it scoured the lawn for small insects and the looming shadows of early evening.

Canon 1Ds MkII, 1/800 sec, f/8, 400mm at ISO 320


  1. I think its pretty special Tim with a 50/50 split in light that really makes it and the bird is nicely positioned.

  2. It is a very pretty image....I love the softness of the photograph.

    Wagtails are lovely birds.....I am extremely fond of them and am blessed that they are regular visitors to the garden.
