I knew this was yours from the thumbnail - what a wonderful shot - packed with detail and food as the bonus, great perch and lovely complimentary b/g - Ina

Very pleased to make this 30 Sylvia. Fine capture again of the Spotted FC on a great perch.
My only suggestion would be in the presentation. As the bird faces right, have the border shadow set at 135 degs to match it, just a personal pref, but would help the eye to follow the image. Like the bg as well Smile

This has been a very fine Flycatcher series Sylvia. I love the detailed plumage and having the food in the mouth is a lovely bonus. Great shot.
