I photographed this juvenile Loggerhead Shrike two days ago on Antelope Island State park in northern Utah. The juvenile came in so close to the pickup that I opted to take portraits of it. Nikon D300, Nikkor 200-400mm VR with 1.4x TC, not baited

    I’m a big fan of portrait shots. Especially when your subject is so close you have to either choose to move on or switch to portrait mode. A very exceptional shot Mia. Razor sharp detail and love that young looking “face”.
