Male Willy Wagtail. These are small birds that constantly flit about taking insects on the wing. They have a fan tail that they display all the time.
This one was down on the river on our farm getting his daily dose of insects. They are fun little birds to watch but always so active.

Taken with,

Z8 and 180-600mm @ 600.
1/2000, F8
DX mode, full frame.

All wagtails are such active, busy little birds that test your patience and skill. It looks like you passed with flying colours on all counts with this lovely capture, Kim!

Great pose and I also like the fanned tail, Kim.
