Wow! TopJob and Hat's off to you. Nicely lit and detailed. Like it. Grin

This shrike is the one I have been consistently trying to capture decently. I've been seeing it a lot in the last two weeks but it just don't let me closer than 45m which is a mission impossible. Shrike's vision is exceptional.

Recently I was wearing camoed clothes and approaching him silently cleverly hiding behind and bellow the vineyard branches/leaves but only one wrong move and he was gone. Wink On the other hand his lady is less aware and more at ease. That's how I got a so-so decent capturing the other day. Wink

Field work can be/is tough but every decent/good image is more than a reward for the effort involved. Wink
