[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
I photographed this Crowned Plover while on Safari in Tarangire National Park in Tanzania. Prior to this meeting the only type of plover I had seen was the Killdeer.

These colorful plovers prefer short dry grasslands and are particularly fond of termites as a food source.

Ciao Ron, great capture of lovely Crowned Plver in nice pose, wonderful natural colors, splendid sharpness and fine details, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

A good looking species of Plover, Ron.
At first glance, it struck me as a Lapwing.
Its head is really ornate to earn that name. The red legs are amazing.
Excellent POV and a pin sharp image.

Have a good weekend

A real beauty, Ron! Excellent capture!

WE have here the Common Ringed Plover (Charadrius hiaticula), some of which winter in Israel, while other just pass.

Have a pleasant weekend,


Hello Ron,
Two Lapwing specie on this page....Very nice and colorful specie. I meet only the European Lapwing which is preparing for the great migration to Africa....

Hello Ron,
I have also captured this Crowned Olive, but still not posted :-(
Quite well captured. This isn't such bird that you will get good details and DOF. So it's a good work, just legs look bit reddish. I like BG light here.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice Week,
