This male Collared Flycatcher was one of many seen this year in Cyprus. We saw more this year than all the previous years combined. Additionally, we also found a few Semi-collared Flycatchers, a tick for all of us. This individual was fairly tame - I managed to position myself at eye level and ensure that the background was clear. (Andy Rouse always recommends a slight movement of position and the entire photo aspect alters).
EXIF detail: Aperture Priority. F/6.3. Shutter 1/1250s. ISO250. -0.7 EV. Centre weighted metering. Focal length 500mm. Tripod mounted.
