Wing walker!<br />
<br />
This little bird looks like it is trying to hitch a ride by landing on the back of larger bird of prey.  The smaller but more agile black drongo attacked the larger brahminy kite when they were both scanning the land and water below for prey.<br />
<br />
The feisty drongo clawed at his rival - leading to a short dogfight in the air.  Vivek Anand captured the interaction during a bird watching walk at Kaikondrahalli Lake in his home city of Bangalore, India.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
