African Wattled Lapwing

African Wattled Lapwing: Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda, August 2022 — For a photographer (or at least for this photographer) it just does not get any better than this. An interesting bird, right beside the Land Cruiser in great light. ! Oh, I could nit-pick and say I might have preferred an eye-level view…but honestly this is just fine 🙂 The African Wattled Lapwing is a very common plover all through East Africa and beyond…sometimes even seen on lawns and golf-courses. Still a very special bird to me. Sony Rx10iv at 320mm equivalent (this bird was really close). Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Pixelmator Photo and Apple Photos. ISO 125 @ f4 @ 1/500th.
