Siberian rubythroat is a winter visitor in Taiwan, usually hiding under the weeds and trees. This particular bird was standing on a rock to show as a model on the runway. Stationary and asking for the attention, I got many good photos about 2 meters from this bird at the famous Yehliu Geological Park on the Northeast coast of Taiwan. Did this bird just finished a long flight over sea from north (China, Korea or Japan)? Since that encounter, I saw the similar species many times and never got any decent shot at all.
