Raw Nature

Raw nature at its best. When we spent a few days looking to photograph this small raptor Collared Falconet, little did we know what mother nature had in store for us. We were driving back when we saw a Paradise flycatcher flying in a very unusual way. On closer inspection we realised it was a prey of the falconet as it landed on this tree and chewed the brains first.
