[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Adult Asian Paradise-flycatchers are 19–22 cm long. Their heads are glossy black with a black crown and crest, their black bill round and sturdy, their eyes black. Female are rufous on the back with a greyish throat and underparts. Their wings are 86–92 mm long. Male Asian Paradise-flycatchers change the colour of their plumage in the first few years of their lives. Sub-adult males look very much like females but have a black throat and blue-ringed eyes. As adult they develop up to 24 cm long tail feathers. Their rufous plumage moults into white with the central pair of tail feathers growing up to 30 cm long streamers that droop. There are adults called rufous-morph with rufous wings and tail but white underparts.

THIs bird was hunting in dark places It was difficult to shoot it avoiding the barricades of thorny creepers and bushes. atlast i could manage this snap. hope u will like it. better luck next time.

Hi Rajan,
It's hard to appreciate the bird with this POV so complex. I suggest, for future opportunities, exploit favorable light conditions. I see no information on the model of your camera in the EXIF but I presume that is a bridge or an advanced compact. I use a Canon SX110IS (compact) and when I take photos of birds in wooded areas, try to at least the bird's head is illuminated by a ray of sunlight arriving directly. This enhances the image and improves the sense of the photo. TFS
