The Baza grabbed the lizard along with this leaf where it was basking the sun

Debapratim, wow, a very powerful, in your face image, with so many intriguing things to contemplate, like the correlation of the broken-off tail of lizard, and the tail tip in beak (that's what it looks like to me).  Wonderful storytelling image and so captivating to view, fantastic image!

Mmmmmmm!  That looks really delicious - but you can tell Baza I'm afraid I've had my dinner tonight so there is no need to share, thank you..... :P

Wonderful image Debapratim! a superb feeding behaviour illustration,  perfect angle, great pose with excellent detail from top to toe.  Well done!

What a beautiful bird and how lucky you are to be able to get close to something like this. The details and exposure look great and I love the natural setting. Well done
