Adorable capture of this new species on TN, Peter.
I have seen birds doing this act quite a few times and I wonder why they do it.
Great action image.

Great image Peter
When we were in the Kruger a few weeks ago, I saw this ritual of dust bathing quite a number of times and it was very interesting to see how the bathing varies among the different birds.
Flycatchers are truly beautiful birds and this Cliff Flycatcher of yours are no exception. Love the colour of its eye and the combination of colours in its plumage. Best regards and thanks for sharing.

Congratulations on another first for TN !!
You managed to photograph this fellow in an attractive pose. Looks like it is resting or else it is about to take off in flight. I really like it's rusty brown and black markings as well the hint of blue in it's eye. Great capture!!
