[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a stonechat (Saxicola rubicola also called S. torquata) is an inhabitant of extensive agricultural habitats. This image was taken in La Serena in Spain.
I think the bird had just flown through the web of a spider.

Good morning Jacob,
We are neighbours today!
You caught this male Stonechat in a typical pose, out in the open for all to see and this shot is sharp and taken from a fine level POV.
Niice composition against a fairly clear sky.
Thanks and enjoy your Sunday,

You've captured a perfect "textbook" portrait of this stonechat Jacob, the neutral grayish-blue BG nicely emphasizes the natural coloring and plumage of the bird. And I think you are right, there are some remains of a web on and around it. TFS.

Hi Jacob,

very nice composition an great pose captured
I done a little workshop, hope you like it & don't mind
best regards, Dejan

Hello Jacob,

Immagine molto fine bella!
