An excellent composition and POV here.Very good DOF, color, exposure, and sharp detail. I like the slightly grey/blue color of the BG sky also.Very well done.

What an attractive presentation showing this beautiful Red-backed Shrike in a striking pose. I like the wonderful eye contact you managed to capture with a tad bit of catchlight. Very pretty markings while displaying wonderful earth toned colors. The composition is great and I especially like the clean BG. Great job!!
