I was walking down a pasture when I saw this bird in the ground. I took some photos and it wasn't moving then I imagined it was sick or had something broken. When I tryied to take it in my hands it scaped flying to the trees around. I never understood why it was in the ground, I thought it was a nocturn bird lost in the day light, but I guess it isn't.
Estava descendo uma pastagem quando vi este pássaro, tirei uma fotos e quando me aproximei me apercebi que ele não se movia. Imaginei que estivesse doente ou com alguma coisa quebrada e quando fui apanhá-lo com as mãos ele saiu voando para as árvores próximas. Até hoje não sei a razão dele estar no chão, pensei até que poderia ser uma ave noturna desabrigada ao sol, mas acho que não era isso.

Angry indeed! Very nice capture. I like the colours with the bird blending into the soil.

Very nice view of this beautiful bird, that we (black Tyka) say
A bird in the woods in summer and warm in winter instead of migrating to the
I wish you a good day.

Whatever was the reason the bird was angry, just by beeing close ranged with human, maybe frightened her.
Anyhow, manage a clear fine image of the bird on ground.

The angry expression of the bird is hilarious. The sharpness is excellent. The green grass contrast perfect. Well done.
Have a nice evening,

Very clear shot of what must have been a tough moment to capture well. You can certainly see the angry expression and the fear in its eyes - glad it seems to be okay, but I hope you didn't get pecked or scratched in the attempt!

You are right, Jorge. Good contribution to the AB theme. This is very popular game and I like this capture of the bird. She is a nervous and I can explain it. Well capture! TFS!

Esse tá com cara de nervoso mesmo, bom pra destruir uns porcos que nem no jogo! Pegou muito bem a expressão no rosto do pássaro, e com boas cores e nitidez. Belo trabalho!
