Sombria | Ortolan Bunting (Emberiza hortulana)

I had been photograping in the same place several times before, even in the previous years, and I had never seen this species around. It was a real and nice surprise when this beauty landed on the stone right in front of me with a bug in his beak! These are the only five shots he allowed me at the moment, but he would come back later for a longer session, and I even had a female as a model too.
