I was on a school trip and we stopped in Lake Nakuru lodge for lunch. Next to our table was a bush and I spotted this paradise flycatcher in it. The light was tricky as it was noon but the bird was in the dense foliage of the bush. I used a bit of flash as well as a lot of patience to get close to it before taking a few pictures. This is a male but not in mating season as its tail is still short.
