Karoo Long-billed Larks are locally common in arid landscapes with low ridges and plains covered in dwarf shrubs. The species exhibits incredible variation in colour, depending on the local plant density and soil colour. This affords them excellent camouflage.

This painting is available as a limited edition (set of 25) print, on high quality A3 paper. This image could also work in a series with the other four long-billed lark species, or even with the related Short-clawed Lark added. Each image is signed by the artist, and numbered. The bird’s name is penciled at the bottom left of the plate. Please contact me if you are interested.
