Hello Paul,
Very good flash shot resulting in good lighting and sharpness of this capture of an upside-down Black-eyed Bulbul, a species new to me.
The blue sky can be seen through the foliage and adds to the day-time feel of the image.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Hej Paul,
What dreadful table manners! But with those tempting fruits I suppose it is acceptable! Sharp details and nice foliage! I like the composition!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla
