Flying without wings.

By ShedMan  
The breeding male Pin Tailed Whydah is known to be aggressive towards other birds at the food source but even though this one was still in his non-breeding winter plumage, he decided to get into practice by swooping down on an unsuspecting Southern Red Bishop. I caught him in mid-swoop while his wings were folded, creating the impression he's hanging in mid-air.
