See what it took for National Geographic photographer Tim Laman, to capture the shot of a lifetime.
This video is called Greater Bird-of-Paradise.
This video is called King-of-Saxony Bird-of-Paradise. Filmed by Tim Laman near Tari Gap in November of 2010.
This video says about itself:
Visit a King Bird-of-Paradise‘s perch in the lowland forests of the Bird’s Head Peninsula in western New Guinea. Watch as a diminutive male practices his courtship display. He aims to impress females with a combination of velvety red plumage, two emerald-green feather disks that bobble on wiry shafts—plus fan-shaped side feathers and abrupt about-face dance moves. Filmed by Tim Laman in August 2009.

Enjoyed a few of the videos that I watched! How gorgeous, and I loved the king!
Yes; which king do you mean? Just “king” or “King of Saxony”? I enjoyed both. Good that, now that there is no longer a king in Saxony, the bird of paradise is still alive 🙂
Just king! : )
Yes; fitting that he performs in the Bird’s Head peninsula 🙂
Definitely. I hope these videos will help protecting the birds and their environment.
It’s very important to protect nature and we have the duty to do this.
Yes. Where the bird-of-paradise live, and elsewhere.
