The  Oriental Skylark (Alauda gulgula), also known as the Oriental Lark or  Small Skylark, is a species of skylark found in the Indian Subcontinent  and Southeast Asia. Like other skylarks, it is found in open grassland -  often near waterbodies - where it feeds on seeds and insects.

These  skylarks frequently rocket up into the sky, fluttering and singing  before descending down to earth. Male Oriental Skylarks may also hover  in the air and sing, in order to attract a mate.

Oriental  Skylarks are about 16 cm long. They have streaked, yellow-brown upper  plumage, with white outer tail feathers and a short crest. Both sexes  are similar.

Thank goodness I ignored black friday !!

Fantastic captures. Better than any shopping deal.

NV U  20' Wow.  Serendipidy he's got the ideal opportunity wouldn't you say. ;)

Jack

Yes, ideal. He should get some really great shots. Can't wait to see more. :)

Actually, all of you are wrong.

The Planet Earth is accurately described as an "oblate spheroid" and is neither round nor flat.

In common use, "round" is an alternative to "flat". Then it is either round of flat, by definition.

A circle is round, a ball is spherical.

I wonder what it is in 11 dimensions?

I thought we were up to 16  dimensions?

I thought it was 11 dimensions too - 4 'normal everyday' spacetime and rest curled up and invisible to us ;)

Yes, that is one of the later models based on string theory and Brane theory of the universe.
From Wikipedia:
One such theory is the 11-dimensional M-theory, which requires spacetime to have eleven dimensions, as opposed to the usual three spatial dimensions and the fourth dimension of time. The original string theories from the 1980s describe special cases of M-theory where the eleventh dimension is a very small circle or a line, and if these formulations are considered as fundamental, then string theory requires ten dimensions. But the theory also describes universes like ours, with four observable spacetime dimensions, as well as universes with up to 10 flat space dimensions, and also cases where the position in some of the dimensions is described by a complex number rather than a real number. The notion of spacetime dimension is not fixed in string theory: it is best thought of as different in different circumstances.
