Hello Mustafa,
Beautiful photo of this Masked Shrike. Excellent sharpness and details, very nice natural colours and a good composition and POV. Pleasant eye-contact.

Hi, Mustafa
This is a beautiful photograph of this rarely seen bird. Very subtle lighting shows all the fine details and shades of brown, and getting the whole bird in focus from the bill to the end of the tail is impressive. Good light in the eye really completes the image - excellent.
Regards, Nigel.

Hallo Mustafa
A stunning, super sharp and super special image filled with lovely colours and clear details. Masterly photographed and I cannot find any fault. You have managed to capture this Masked Shrike in a great and relaxed pose, and presented in a most delightful manner. The lovely background, emphasise the details of the birds plumage to a great extent. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards
