This is another one of my favorite ‘target practice’ bird. This tiny little bird is super quick in its’ movements and trying to get it in focus is always a challenge to a photographer. Anyway these are some of my shots of this wonderful bird captured in February 2010.
Even though these images were captured at about 6pm, the lighting was still quite harsh, probably due the clear sky.
These images were shot on an open ground on the bank of Sg. Trengganu, near Kg. Temir, Kuala Brang. Note that the bird was feeding on ‘senduduk’ fruit.
This ‘senduduk’ fruit has a tough skin, it is amazing to see this tiny little bird crushed the fruit effortlessly …
The fruit disappeared within just a few seconds! These birds not only move very fast, they can also eat very quickly….
