In July there were loads of juvenile Loggerhead Shrikes on Antelope Island in Utah. This one flew in and landed so close to me that I felt that the best I could do was take portrait images. Nikon D300, f9, 1/100, ISO 640, Nikkor 200-400mm VR with 1.4x TC

    Beautiful photo! My favorite type of bird photo is portrait or “head & shoulder” so I think this is especially wonderful. I saw your photo of the Western Kingbird in the current issue of the magazine and congratulations on that!

    Happy birding!
