Sudden encouner in rain

Finishing my work in forest, on my way to office, I found a Oriental Cuckoo suspecting juvenile.
Sometimes it flew on the ground and picked insect, above photo's one was Short-horned Grasshopper.

At first, I took it by 300mm lens. Because it was not escape far away, I got back to office and brought 500mm lens as soon as possible. This photo is taken by 500mm.

Tomakomai, Hokkaido. 15/Oct/2010.
