African Paradise Flycatcher
African Paradise Flycatcher by philip Gate Keeper, on Flickr

This photo could have been better, with greater detail. The shot was taken with a 75-300 mm mark 2, looking through dense bushes, late afternoon, one hour before the light went completely. I tried auto focus, auto everything, but it would not lock onto the bird. As you know the birds move fast from branch to branch and by the time I tried manual, it was too late.

Thank you for your advice, negative comments or positive are welcomed.

I am just going out shortly into the forest to try again.
All the best
