    Very nicely done, Albie. If I had any nits, it would be that the perch is a bit overpowering, but still a very nice image.

    That's funny Albie. I was trying to get a shot of these yesterday but couldn't get close enough. Sure is one heck of a lunch it has there. The eye shows really well in the black feathers.

    I'm rather partial to perches that kind of reflect the pose of the bird. When involved in other activity most species are a little more approachable.
    Is that a praying mantis Albie ?it certainly looks like a good feed for him.
