Thank you all for your comments! I did not know that my photos will cause many reviews. About wind, butterflies sit down on the spikes interesting, like the once had.

Sometimes it happens self-Saboya. I saw myself in the desert - scared male-bear, and his gust of wind and the spread on dzhingil. It happened just a couple of seconds. Then he began to pay attention to the thorns who just does not hang. But the Shrike will not be canceled!

Come you- shrike. He is flying fast, in a hurry for a date, that ran on a branch, as a joke - "Hello girls." Or sipokku committed or, in our opinion, seppuku :))

Clear. Well: Shrike can safely be called a colleague :))))

I would not zashto did not! It harvests so shrike prey catches insects, lizards sit down on the spikes and then when the food is not found, picks and eats harvested stocks.
