Slaty-backed forktail
Can you imagine how it feels, to sit on the ground under camo nets, near a river, with dense vegetation in the back; in a country with many snakes. A wonderful forktail surprise for me because I could take pictures of a White-crowned forktail, in a paid hide at Siriphum Waterfall in the NP, as well.

Many thanks for showing him to us lad.
What a gorgeous bird. Brilliant full frame profile with excellent eye contact, exposure, focus, dof, colors, and setting. Outstanding JB!
Three excellent colourful and detailed close up captures, JB. Brilliant, well done.
