Red-backed shrike




I saw plenty of Shrikes during my recent trip to Cyprus and at times I had very close up views of Woodchat and Masked Shrikes. With theses Red-backed shrikes I photographed a little more patience was required. I saw that they were using certain trees and bushes to catch insects so positioned my car close by and just waited for them to come back and I managed to capture these images.
