The Asian Paradise Flycatcher or Terpsiphone paradisi is a medium-sized passerine bird native to Asia. Males have elongated central tail feathers, and in some populations a black and rufous plumage while others have white plumage. Females are short-tailed with rufous wings and a black head. They feed on insects, which they capture in the air often below a densely canopied tree.

Hello Joy

Happy to see you again among us and from your photos again,
excellent photo of this Asian Paradise Flycatcher,
fine POV obtaining his eye-contact and the way
he is framed with its long tail, excellent focus,
sharpness, and details, TFS


Delighted to realize you were at Chitwan in May, apparently in quest for nature pictures, Joy.
First of all, congratulations for showcasing this species of birds on TN, maybe for the first time.
The image is excellent considering the fact that with such a long tail, it must not have been easy to get the entire bird within the frame. In a picture restricted to 800 on the longer side, a subject like this one has to be reduced in size. Still, you have managed it well with great sharpness, required contrasts and near-to-natural colours. That blue-ringed eye in particular makes my day. Lovely!!
Thanks and regards.
