This is the first time for me that I am seeing and taking photos of this great grey shrike (lanius excubitor). The image was taken from car when we were in one of the fish ponds near Emek-beit-shean, north of Israel. We actually finished shooting and were on our way home and suddenly he was there - just sitting at the top of one of the trees and was not moving for a few minuts.
