Motacilla alba is a tiny bird, called in Israel "Nachliely" ( English: White Wagtail) and usually comes as a "messenger" to winter here in Israel.
It has a pleasant twitt, unique sounds.
20-28gr weight, 9cm tail out of max. 20cm length, white belly, grey to black wings.
It's twitt is pleasent and with fine musical tone and it is a swift and lovely bird to watch: never on "rest" mode.
See how the fallen leaf on left is scaling this small one...

The bird is well placed in the framed. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the White Wagtail. The morning light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

To catch this bird alive and quick, you have to be a good hunter - photographer. Beautiful bird photos in the center, surrounded by green grass around. It is rather unusual habitat for him, this bird prefers, however, unless water jets. Excellent composition.
בוקר טוב. כדי לתפוס את הציפור, תוסס כל כך מהירה צריך להיות צייד טוב - צלם. צילום יפה של ציפור במרכז התמונה, היא מוקפת דשא ירוק. אני חושב שזה בית גידול חריג בשבילו, הציפור הזו כנראה מעדיף מים ונחלים. דרישת שלום.

A simple composition and capture difficult, as these birds do not stop moving.
Superb light and colors.
