Flycatcher, or Kingbird

One would think eating a dragonfly whole would be a daunting task for this bird. It even escaped for a few seconds, only to be quickly repatured. In a short time it was swallowed, and the flycatcher sat opening and closing its beak for a minute. Then it flew down to the grass, caught a grasshopper, flew back up to its perch, and commenced to swallow that too.

Amazing.
