Stonechat in Doņana
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This is a Stonechat, Saxicola torquatus (svarthakad buskskvätta in swedish) from Parque Nacional Doņana in southern Spain. This is probably one of the best places in Europe for birdwatching. There are a couple of areas with a few hides in for bird photography and this is from one of them. We could sit there for hours watching them hunting insects and showing of for each others.|

Beautiful photo of this Stonechat in fine sharpness and very nice natural colours. Excellent composition, POV and pleasing eye contact. Beautiful blurred background too.
