[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Brown Shrike with her catch, a cricket I think. Flash fill-in was used to lift the shadow off the underbody of bird and to provide more details on an otherwise dark cricket. The two white spots thingy I think is brain or head juice oozing out through the eyes under the tight grip of bird's beak.

Technical note :-
300mm @ f8 1/500 iTTL -1.3 EV flash sync, ISO-200 slightly cropped for composition.
