    striking colors make him stand out well in the desert. they usually pass by in large numbers in a certain day in March, so you either be where they stop by, or you will miss them, and have to wait for the next March. hope you like it.

    Properties in sea side villages, on Lesvos and other Greek islands, are mostly summer residences occupied from mid June to September.

    not sure of the ID, but i would strongly go for a female black eared wheatear, since there were 5 males in the region. what ever, she is a real polite girl stood like this enough for me to take 8 shots. Hope you like it.
