[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Rufescent Prinia (Prinia rufescens)
This little bird averaging 10 to 12 cm kept busy getting all the bugs he could find. They are found in thick undergrowth.

It was an overcast sky and no fill flash was used.

Just gorgeous, Phil.
A fetching pose (no pun intended) of this beautiful bird holding the colorful grasshopper in the beak.
Love the up-standing tail. Gives great balance to the shot.
Super sharp details and perfect DOF.
