Today went out with my 10yr old son bird hunting with the cameras. Both of us took a lot of pics of various birds; including kingfisher, bunting, great tits, herons, and my son’s favorite by far, this shrike. We’ve been competing over the past couple of weeks over who gets the best shots. My son has been wiping the floor with me since we started, but this one is, I hope, the start of my comeback! Great day all round and will probably be doing the same tomorrow :)

Taken in Saitama, Japan.
