Phoenix

At the end of every winter, farmers of this huge grassland generally burn the grass and reed to clean the land for upcoming crop. When the fire spreads across the land,It destroys habitat of many birds and insects.As the fire progresses through the grassland all the grassland birds fly for shelter and small insects start coming out but Black Drongo acts differently! Then the brave black drongo starts capitalizing on such a moment by eating them flying on the live fire. The brave bird reminds me the legend of Phoenix.
