Charming bird this is indeed. Very elegant bird, with an arrangement of soft colours in the plumage. You captured it in a great pose showing clear detail of some of its lovely features, especially the sharp edged beak and the black stroke through the eye. I like the branches full of fine leaves on which the bird is resting on as well as it being a part of the backdrop. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Mmmmm, too cute for words this lovely little Red-backed Shrike.
You've really captured a great shot.
The catchlight in the eye, the superb OOF and evenly coloured BG,
the exceptional sharp details, the wonderful natural colours, and the
excellent composition all makes for a visual striking image.
Although for you part I'm not happy to see it, but I'm glad to notice that
I am not the only one who struggles with unwanted grasses or twigs (chuckle).
Well done and TFS.

Beautiful photo of this Red-backed Shrike. Great sharpness and details and very beautiful natural colours. A pity of the grasses in the FG. Excellent POV, composition and OOF BG.

le sujet est un peu trop centré a mon avis mais la netteté est parfaite et fait oublier ce petit details

First-class of the charming bird. Pose of the bird and its details, twigs with small fine leaves and absolutely smooth BG create an amazing composition. Bravo. Well done.

A very fine portrait of a male Lanius collurio taken from an excellent POV in superb lighting with fine sharpness and colours. The composition on the top of a Hawthorn bush against a neutral Bg is excellent.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

I have seen these in Africa before and not been able to get a pic as good as this!
