Secretive Bird Nightjars are one of best species in kingdom Animalia who are best in their camouflage. These nocturnal birds have so perfect pattern of leaf litter on them that in day light its almost impossible to spot them. They do come and sit on streets at night and that is how I could photograph this fellow.
