I thought this was not a bird when it flew by from one high branch to another of one huge matured jungle tree. The feathers are so long and fluffy I thought I was dreaming of looking at a long piece of tissue paper blown by the wind. There was no wind int the jungle. I just realized that it was a bird and it was the first time for me to see this one. I didn’t have a good camera to capture its beauty in low light. I tried to brace myself on a trunk of a tree standing on uncertain ground filled with grass on an overhang of the bank of a stream. I focused, it was bloody difficult for such a machine I took with me to take proper shots. I took the shots and here I have it, I am so blessed to have seen this and share to all. We have so much beautiful birds around us.
