Quite a few years ago, I was out sketching in the mountainous region of Abruzzo (I've mentioned in other posts) and got the opportunity of observing a red-backed shrike poised on a bramble. He was at ease and stayed there for all the time I needed. I can't remember if I had my telescope or only my binoculars, but anyway I caught him looking in different directions.
Shrikes have this habit, luckily, of flying always back to their favourite branch unless something disturbs them.
The butterfly must have come later in the day (sorry, I can't identify it!)
So, seeing other shrikes posted here, I remembered this sketch and thought of joining in the theme.
