Hello Fikret,
A nice close, sharp capture of a Sylvia warbler. As there is no red ring round the eye, and this looks like an adult bird, I would say that this is a Whitethroat (Sylvia communis) rather than a female Sardinian Warbler.
Great pose and contrast with the dark natural BG.
Regards, Ivan

Hi Fikret,

A wonderful shot of this Warbler in an excellent pose. If they are as small and flighty as our warblers you had great timing to capture him. The face, eye, wings, plummage and tail feathers all have superb sharp details and marvelous natural colors. I love the dark background that makes the bird stand out so well.
