Hello Paul,
a great shot of this beautiful bird. Focus plain and depth of field are well selected
resulting in high sharpness of the bird and appropriately blurred surrounding.
Best wishes, Peter

Hallo Paul,
Alweer een om trots op te zijn. Ik heb deze wel gezien, maar zo mooi vrij op een tak en dan ook nog zingend.... Mooie natuurlijke kleuren en een goede scherpte. Prima diepte in de foto.
Groet vanuit een zeer zonnig (eindelijk) en met sneeuw bedekt Holland,

A lovely Flycatcher from an iseal, low viewpoint Paul, which reveals the plumage and colouration details of the bird to a perfection. The natural environment enhances the composition. TFS indeed!

Hello Paul,
Great to see you again.
Saw your Kruger photostream and it was great to be back in Kruger also:-).
A Paradise Flycatcher photographed in Olifants restcamp in other words a wonderful bird captured in a wonderful place.
And you captured it very well. I remember I stayed one night in Olifants and it was so windy so I checked your shutter speed and it was very short indeed probably due to the same fact.
I haven't spotted this particular specie in Kruger back in 2007 let alone photograph it at such a decisive moment.
Congrats and all my greetings to Vivian.
