Rock Pipit

When I was photographing the Gannnets this Rock Pipit landed about twenty feet in front of me.
The photograph has had no post photograph enhancements whatsoever. You can't beat getting up close to your subject for a stunning picture, however it is wrong to stress the subject by continually getting to close and affecting its natural behaviour.


  1. Sam excellent shot,I agree a distressed bird is not a happy bird.
    Well said, good comment.

  2. Beautiful photo! As for your comment on my blog about the weather - it really hasn't been the norm in the last few years. It's been much warmer in April and May, but this year . . . well, in Montana they say if you don't like the weather, wait 5 mintues and it'll change!

  3. The Lichen (or whatever it is) on the rock is a lucky addition of color with this bird. Beautiful.
