Image Description

At the end of every winter, farmers generally burn the grass and reed to clean the land for upcoming crop. When the fire spreads across the land, small insects start coming out. Then the brave black drongo starts capitalizing on such a moment by eating them flying on the live fire. Avoiding the smoke-- created by this fire-- was the most challenging task besides the rapid change of exposure.The brave bird reminds me the legend of Phoenix...
