Every now and then a bird will oblige by posing for you. This Levaillant's Cisticola came and sat on a grass stem about 2m away from me, facing into the sun. It posed there just long enough for me to get four good shots. This is the best of them.
P.S. Other than cropping (1200 x 900) and resizing to 600 x 450, the only post processing was a little noise reduction and very minor sharpening - everything else is as it came off the camera.
