Forked-tailed drongo.

I have been trying for years to get a decent photo of a Forked-tailed drongo, (fly-catcher). These little birds hardly ever sit still, flitting backwards and forwards snatching insects on the wing. 

Click to enlarge.

This bird posed for quite a while, till he was certain I'd got his best profile. 

A week previously this oak tree looked dead, and now new leaves are sprouting.

Phil, that's a perfect picture of the Fork-tailed Drongo. You captured its "jiz" (stance/attitude) taking in the forked tail and got the glint in its eye. Lovely photo. xx

Glad to hear from you again. Hope all is well.

Grace and peace.

Hey Phillip. I was just thinking about you yesterday. Good to see you back again.
