Crested Lark and Dunes by David Clark

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

A crested lark in early morning sunlight in the dune area of the United Arab Emirates. These guys are native, and very hardy surviving in the harsh desert environment and they have a wonderful light song. This male was too preoccupied with competitors to pay much attention to me (that is why his crest is up)

Canon 40D with 100-400mm lens at 400
