A Wheatear (Oenanthe) watches the sunset on an Agave flower.

Hope you like it.

from wikipedia:

They are terrestrial insectivorous passerine birds of open, often dry, country . They often nest in rock crevices or disused burrows.

Northern species are long-distance migrants, wintering in Africa.

Wheatears are typically larger than the European Robin. Most species have characteristic black and white or red and white markings on their rumps or their long tails.

Most species are strongly sexually dimorphic; only the male has the striking plumage patterns characteristic of the genus, though the females share the white or red rump patches.

Its English name has nothing to do with wheat or ears, but is a bowdlerised form of white-arse, which refers to its prominent white rump.

Hi Sayat!

You present us a very classical, yet pleasant and well composed picture. The silhouette of the plant and the bird are suprising and amazing, well highlighted by the wonderful colours of the background.

Kind regards

Markus

Bonsoir Sayat,
Image tout à fait surprenante avec cette construction très habile de l'image. Image poétique et touchante avec l'oiseau perché au sommet de la plante regardant la fin du jour.
Je te souhaite une bonne nuit (Ne devrais-tu pas déjà dormir?)
