Re: Great shot !

He, he, actually no. I shot this photo "on the run". He was on the ground initially among the scree (uninteresting background), but when he saw me he jumped on a tree.
I was happy as it made for a much nicer backdrop. Thanks for the vote.

Re: Great shot !

Thank you for the information. Turdus migratorius is a bird, which occasionally one can meet also in Poland. They are under protection. Henryk
