Paradise flycatcher.

Will upload more details.

Got this shot during a hike to Cathedral Peak in Drakensberg mountain ranges. Its very difficult to get a decent shot of this bird since they are always busy and always hop around inside somekind of bush. By the time you get that long tail incorporated into the frame the bird might have hopped to another branch. Eventhough this shot is not a great one I still consider myself lucky to get atleast this far. Right below this bush there was a stream running.
