this kind of bird abounds at the megadike area, this is the one that made me bring my binoculars whenever i ride my bicycle in that area.

It's quite tough to approach this shy grasslands skulker. Catching it in the open while on a photogenic perch and nicely colored background is a rare thing. The hand held combo of the 20D + 500 f4 IS + Canon 1.4x TC delivers the reach and fast response that made this capture possible.
