I love this species and like the wonderful shot of it. X-composition of the picture is stunning as well as details of the charming bird. Light key of execution is amazing. Very nice and delicate lights and colours. These birds are widespread around my countryside. However, I cannot come so close to them. Bravo.

Hi Paul. It good to be able to go back over your archives every now and then. When you can find pictures like this. This is a good side POV letting use see the bird in detail. We can see the very large eye for a small bird. good natural colours and fine detail in the feathers. well done TFS.

Staying spot on there Paul. Very soft appearance which is natural as the colours...and well seen by your eye...some can do magic with camera and PATIENCE which is how this is done..location and the wait!

I am jealous, we have Shrikes here but they are so shy I have not gotten a really good image as yet. This one is excellent with stunning plumage details and colors. Great work Paul, thank you.

You have taken this photo from a very inspired POV. You have had a good eye contact and a fine perspective over the bird. Image is very good being sharp and having natural colors. The sharply shown bird looks fine against the blurry background.
Thank you for sharing,
