Stonechat

December 15, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Another day, another Stonechat - this time in the Oued Massa in Morocco, site of previous amazing Stonechat encounters. Once I had negotiated the floodwaters that was! This bird necessitated leaping across a ditch using my monopod much like a pole vault....mildly risky, but well worth it. Even though it was the middle of the day, I was blessed with a momentary covering of thin white cloud which acted as a giant reflector and took the edge of the heat. All of these were with the 800mm atop my pole vault, a lens which I had not used in Southern Morocco before, and that I took with precisely small birds like this in mind. The images are all a bit similar, but it was difficult not to keep pushing the shutter!
