Musical Mimic: Like a soothing musical notation symbol, the silhouetted Greater Racket-tailed Drongo against the half-peeping moon through cumulus clouds evokes harmony. These intelligent birds with their elegantly dangling ‘racket’ tails are excellent mimics. They can perfectly mimic myriad bird species, mammals and even frogs! The photographer made most of this low, yet mesmerising light conditions in Sarralabettu, Karnataka, to make this low-key frame.
