1st April 2011, Bukit Tinggi
On my way back from Kenyir, I made a short detour to Bt. Tinggi to check out the bird activities at the Japanese Garden. It was already late afternoon and it was about to rain when I arrived there – not really an ideal condition for bird photography. Any way I decided to proceed as I believe in Nature photography, we just have to adapt to the conditions that is available to us. Here are some of the images that I managed to capture under this challenging circumstances.
I was taking a shelter under the shed when a flock of this black and yellow colored bird showed up briefly on a distant tree. They turned out to be a flock of Sultan Tit – a lifer for me!
Low light and distant object equals poor image quality, that’s what I got here!
A pair of Verditer Flycatcher also made their appearance. Here is the male.
And this is, I believe, is the female.
Female Verditer Flycatcher having her snack of a moth she caught moments earlier!
As soon as the rain stopped, this familiar Streaked Spiderhunter showed up on a banana flower at the edge of the shed.
To a Spiderhunter, nothing tastes better than the nectar in the flowers!
