So being called butcherbird means he's not a vegetarian? I can just imagine what that hook on the end of his beak is for.

Very good detail , interesting composition.

Thank You Dennis, they sure are not vegetarians, they love bugs. They got their name because of the hook, but no one seems to know what it is really for.

Couldn't agree more!! How did you achieve the black background?

He was on the roof edge just above my head about 24 inches away, he had the sun shining on him and a very bright sky behind.
I tried several settings taking 5 shots before he flew away, this one was the only where he didn't move and for this I used -
Exposure Program: Manual
Exposure Time: 1 / 750
Flash: Flash did not fire, compulsory flash mode
FNumber: 8
Focal Length: 90
ISO Speed Ratings: 200
