Comment:This very tame Grey Butcherbird was being handfed in Kingscliff. At one stage it put a piece of meat in the fork of a branch in classic butcherbird style. It was not until I put it up that I realized I had achieved one of my objectives - capturing an image in which I was reflected in the bird's eye. PP included a very severe crop, low level noise reduction and slight addition of colour saturation.
