[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I spotted this beautiful bird high up in a tree at Serondella camp in the Thornybush game reserve. It took me more than an hour before I was able to take a decent shot of this male Paradise Flycatcher. The camera was handheld, sharpness and contrast were adjusted with Nikon View.

Bonne profondeur de champs. Les branches devant l'oiseaux sont biens pour ce cadrage un peu trop loin a mon gout.

  • Great

Wow, what a gem of nature, Daniel. Thank you for capturing it with such clarity and sharp details and sharing it with us. Well done. : )

Nice shot Daniel.. the colours of this bird are impressive. Good composition... well done!

This is a very nice picture. I like the composition. TFS.

Hallo Daniel,
Niet gezien in Kruger!
Thornybush game reserve? Interessant voor game spotting? Als je vergelijkt met Kruger bijvoorbeld?
