Red-breasted Flycatcher by Col Scott
It's been another amazing week of postings, with 770 photos uploaded and many Iris photographers heading towards the east coast judging by the locations of so many images.
And it was on the east coast at Bempton, East Yorkshire, that this week's winning shot was taken: a perfectly posed Red-breasted Flycatcher by Col Scott. With wings dropped and tail cocked, the image shows this species to perfection and the photographer has done very well capturing the moment.

Using a 400 mm lens and shooting at 1/400th second on ISO 1600 on a dull-looking day, Col is to be congratulated on his outstanding Photo of the Week.
