Meadowlarks On A Fence

I’ve mentioned before how much I like photographing Meadowlarks. These seasonal visitors to southern Arizona are extremely photogenic.
A couple of days ago I was driving in farm country when I saw these two sitting on a fence. I knew immediately that they would make a good picture. However, I wanted to capture them both facing in the same direction. That was no easy task. One would look one way, the other would look in a different direction, and I couldn’t get them to coordinate. I was also very fearful that one or both would fly before I got my shot.
Luck was on my side. Just when I had concluded that I’d never get the image that I wanted, the two swiveled their heads in tandem.
