CommentI would normally expect to find this species in a sparsely vegetated farm paddock. But I found a group of eight Banded and two Masked Lapwings feeding in a gilgai not far off the road. They were very quiet and did not seem concerned about my presence. I made very few adjustments to this image in DPP4 and Photoshop. It is almost straight from the camera.
EquipmentCanon EOS 7D mark II ,Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM , Ext EF 2x III
