Photo Tip:
Understanding just a little bit about bird behavior can really help you get great shots. We came upon this Cape Long-billed Lark busy having a sand bath in the middle of one of the sand tracks. We approached cautiously with the vehicle and got the cameras setup before switching off the engine. This bird gave us a 5 minute show, and for a bird that is notoriously difficult to photograph from a vehicle it was a great capture.
