Flycatcher



The African Paradise-Flycatcher (Tersiphone viridis) is a beautiful bird with impressive colors and a long tail. This male was every day at the same time on his place for hunting small insects. The photos are made in a small village with many bushy areas in Northern Ethiopia at an elevation of 2200 m.
The bird has an incredible flight behavior through bushes, shrubs and fences and he was too fast for the camera.
