Banded Pitta - Jewel of the Tropical Forest

April 3oth 2013, Merapoh, Taman Negara

After numerous unsuccessful attempts to photograph this stunning looking bird, I finally managed to get some photos that's worth keeping and sharing.

The task is made more difficult due to it's nature of  being a smart and very shy behaviour.

Just some quick shots before it actually disappears into the undergrowth...

This bird I believe, spends more time on the ground foraging for food among the dead leaves.

At the slightest noise or movement, he's ready to flee to the safety of the undergrowth...

After numerous attempts, I finally managed to capture this elusive bird out in the open. It must have been my lucky day that I was at the right place and time.
