Tiger Shrike preying on bug

Found this Tiger Shrike perched on a tree preying attentively.

When her prey is found, she swooped down from the twig and immediate holding down its prey with her claw ...what a sight for a beginner like me.

...and finally devouring her prey.

The whole episode took place in a blink of an eye, lucky me.
