Well, some days before the trip, I told to my friend Riccardo, who is mainly a raptors lover, that I would liked to spend a whole day at Santa Caterina Monastery only to photograph the Sinai Rosefinch. Well, at the end I must say that I thought it would have been an easier species to photograph ... Anyway I am fairly satisfied :-))

Ok, now I am just jalous! Spend some time on this species when I was there, but didn't succeed (also because my travel compagnons insisted on getting on...). Beautiful photo (as always) of a stunning species!
