094/365 Montane Nightjar

Getting low down is the only way to go sometimes.  Shooting this nightjar from above would have been impossible as I wouldn’t have been able to approach this bird from a standing position. I decided to get down low and commando crawl up to this bird that I spotted perched next to the road whilst I was in Kenya.  The red eye is a result of the reflection of the flash from my camera…. should have used red eye reduction mode 😉

Montane Nightjar, Caprimulgus poliocephalus, Kenya.
