It is always fascinating what I get in front of the lens in our garden. Blackbirds are not uncommon and I can always watch them pulling earthworms out of our lawn. But this evening it was something special. I was sitting on the patio in the camouflage tent when this blackbird rooster settled in the apple tree and let his song be heard. I took some photos at a distance of 5–6 meters and was later very surprised that while singing he was still carrying his hunting victim in his beak — a centipede!
I have never seen that before! And moreover in these details!
