After 20 minutes or so I caught sight of some movement, and there they were. They are really confiding birds and by perching myself on a rock, they carried on their business and came towards me. So many photographers don't use any field craft, but patience and good positioning means you never need to spook your birds and they in turn feel comfortable with you, which allows you to get your shots.
The male is darker, with the colouring almost black as opposed to the brown of the female.

Hello, they are one of my favorite birds. Great capture and sighting of the Snow Buntings. Beautiful! Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!ReplyDelete
Oh my! They blend in perfectly to their habitat! Good eyes to spot them! WOW!ReplyDelete
Lovely birds. They were easier us to find in Norfolk last weekend when we encountered a flock of c50 on the saltings at Holkham. At times very close to us, but great to see the flock wheeling around in the air too.ReplyDelete
Aww ... so cute! They are, indeed, cleverly camouflaged to look like stones, although their beaks are bright.ReplyDelete
A super selection of photos - they blend in with the stones of the beach well!ReplyDelete
