Male Horned Lark getting ready to take offMale Horned Lark getting ready to take off – Nikon D300, f6.3, 1/1000, ISO 500, Nikkor 200-400mm VR with 1.4x TC at 400mm, natural light

This morning I wanted to do a much longer post but because I was so busy yesterday I wasn’t able to get that post done so this morning I am sharing a simple image of a male Horned Lark in the West Desert getting ready to lift off from the rock it was perched on back in April of this year. In the West Desert of Utah there are a few places in Tooele County I can almost be sure to find Horned Larks warming themselves in the morning light on rocks and boulders.
