Horned Lark with California Poppies

I’m spending a little of my Sunday morning playing around with my photography workflow on an iPad Pro instead of a laptop. My experimental subject is this Horned Lark I photographed this week not far from the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve. The Horned Lark is a bird of fields, low grasslands, and other open habitats found from Arctic Canada to central Mexico at elevations from sea level to 13,000 feet. They form large nomadic flocks during winter, often associating with other species such as longspurs, American Pipits, and Snow Buntings. While still a common species, their population numbers have declined by 71% since 1966 according to data from the North American Breeding Bird Survey. If so inclined, you can get prints of this image here:
