Grey fantail

The twisting, turning aerial acrobatics of the Grey Fantail was capturing insects in the air. Its tail was swinging from side to side and widely fanned (unfortunately I cannot show you the fanned tail here). I and my puppy dog were sitting on the grass and watching this very busy guy. This bird was curious and started coming closer and closer to us, and then started feeding 50 cm away from us!!
