Picanço-barreteiro, Woodchat Shrike (Lanius senator)

This species is very easy to find in the wild in the areas where it breeds because it always choose a high place to find its preys.Another thing is have it on the full screen of the machine...
Very territorial we can find it every day on the same area.This one I shoot it from the car... a bite of luck is always very welcome and I thank it for this moment.

More info about the species:


Have a good week and thanks for viewing...

Bela fotografia, José. Com um baixo nível de exposição que dá a composição um tom geral de grande calor. Detalhes da plumagem perfeita e contato visual impecável neste tiranidae.

Obrigado pelo seu trabalho, o homem.

Hello Jose,
What a great shot of this pretty Woodchat Shrike. The focus is tac sharp allowing us to view it's fine features and beautiful colors in exceptional detail. You could not have asked for a better pose atop this little outcropping and against a pretty sky. Wonderful eye contact with just a hint of that ever sought after catchlight. Well done!!
