This was more of a grab shot when I saw the bird playing with the insect before eating it. Because of the distance and size of the bird, some detail in the tail has been lost.
Hope you like anyway.

Maybe it is grainy, but I cannot imagine any bird photographer would not be pleased with this. Great timing, well caught.
