The extraordinary display of the Greater Bird-of-Paradise is a very hard thing to witness: the birds perform at dawn, high in the rainforest canopy. To capture the details of the display and the females’ responses, Ed Scholes and Tim Laman devised an ingenious remote camera they could place in the display tree, at eye level with the birds. Filmed and photographed by Tim Laman. Explore more at www.birdsofparadiseproject.org
