A Dandy Meadowlark
This morning I saw this Western Meadowlark hunting for insects in a field near Oahe Dam. It seems like most of the photos I take of meadowlarks show the bird on a fence post. There is nothing wrong with birds on posts, but it is nice to see photos that look a little more natural. So, I was glad to get a few shots of this bird hopping around in the grass and dandelions. The yellow breast of the meadowlark pretty well matches the yellow of the dandelion flowers, don't you think?
