One of a pair of Wheatears taken on a recent trip to Devon, on the rocks by Plymouth Sound. They must have been on their way north from Africa as I only saw them the one morning.

Beautiful shot! The touch of color on the rocks is nice. The sharpness of the bird is spot on. The background is nicely blurred.
