Batanta, West Papua, Indonesia - 31 juli 2013
Male of Wilson's Bird-of-paradise. This was the first attempt (together with the group) to see and photographe this mythical bird. The bird showed pretty well but was almost constantly obscured by twigs and leafs. The poor light me to put the ISO number at 4000 or higher.I made a second climb up to the lek two days later alone with a guide in an attempt to get to see the Wilson's Bird-of-paradise in better light conditions.
