Our nesting female Spotted Flycatcher (Muscicapa striata) is still incubating her eggs. She makes brief sorties out of the nest to feed herself and sits on a high branch scanning all around her for bugs and flies.

Many thanks for your C&Cs on my last upload - always much appreciated Smile

Somehow knew this might have been yours sweetie, can't think for the life of me why that might be??? Wink Well done mate, it's a stunner, but I'd expect nothing less from you.

Very well captured shot with the bird in an attractive 'pose', it's gaze over one shoulder as it were.
