Location: Mt Kanlaon National Park, Negros, Philippines
A young Brown Shrike (Lanius cristatus) posed for me for quite some time when he was perched on this corn stalk. This particular species of shrike is migratory and they start appearing in the Philippines around September. Most of their diet is composed of insects and they have a unique habit of impaling insects on thorns, a rather violent behavior for such a cute animal.
This photograph was shot near the entrance of Mt Kanlaon Park in Negros Occidental, Philippines.
Equipment: Canon 7D + Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS + 1.4x TC
