Tukang Rumah Pemalas

For the past 1 week ,this Large-tail Nightjar always perch on that old metal about 10 minutes after maghrib.
My 4th attempt to get the right shots. Problems to get accurate focus at night, to get the exposure/flash right and to hide from the bird.
This time I pre-focused and set-up camera/tripod about 5 meter from the metal frame.
With manual metering and Phottix Cleon Wireless Remote control shutter release. I fired a few shots when the bird land
