Sun in my eyes ...

As the first rays
of Sun ... through
the light mist
fall on this ...

... Male Isabelline Shrike

he bears the impression
of still being half
asleep ...
someone ... pulling the
quilt away
... on a winter
Monday morning

Probably ... first
time we captured one
sitting at his
nightly roost at
the daybreak ...

... with rising sun
at the horizon seen
in his eye ...

Watch him in extreme
closeup in a video-clip ...
