A tame Collared Flycatcher

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.
