That's a lovely pose you've captured Stanley. Isn't this flycatcher gorgeous!

Super work my friend - very well done.

A merry Christmas and happy New Year to you and your family.

He is a little handsome 'hunk', with that rich color tone of his plumage, Stanley.

Exquisite shot!

Splendid work Stanley. An interesting perch, and though it looks like the light wasn't entirely in your favour, it's all worked out very well.
 
One more excellent catch of lovely Flycatcher, Stanley. Great closeup shot!
