[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Slightly smaller than the sparrow (ca. 13cm), the Sand Lark is greyish sandy, with dark brown streaks, from above, while the belly is white, sparsely and indistinctly dark-streaked on the sides. Supercilium and cheeks are white. Shortish black and white tail. Sexes alike.

Keeps singly or in scattered twos or threes; in non-breeding season in small flocks of up to 20 or 30. Runs about feeding on bare sandy flats in the characteristic zigzag jerky spurts of the family.

Nice shot. Your trademark crispness, DOF and detail, the lens is a great one and has delivered perfectly.
