Black eared wheatear
one of those memorable days, for two reasons. the first was this one was so friendly let me so close as this shot is almost full frame.
the second was after i got back home later in the afternoon, they put a curfew on us for i think 20 days, because of the freaking Covid thing. so this shot is from 2020.

hope you like it.
