“Just sharing a picture of a Greater Racket-tailed Drongo (Dicrurus paradisus) with his breakfast – a praying mantis. It was captured after a spectacular mid-air battle between the predator and prey.”

Like other drongos, this bird is basically an insectivore – a sallying, substrate-gleaning insectivore.
