In between the stuff that I was busy doing , I managed to visit a couple of blogs from a visitor. An interesting birding blogs managed by a person calling himself as Tabib.
You'll find lots of interesting stuff there and you'll surely be amazed by the number of exciting bird's species that can be found around his home. Lucky guy! I'm sure he never ran out of CF coz he could always upload the files to his PC in no time!
I, myself on the other hand have to drive 16km from home to stand a chance of a good sighting. As usual, Labuan Botanical Garden would be the main destination. Some shots really put a good smile on my face and hopefully to yours as well, enjoy;
Tired on the waiting game, I moved slowly to the other end of the park to find some sort of excitement. I was given not more than 15 second by the Mangrove Blue Flycatcher(cyornis rufigastra) to have a shot at. I got the 'excitement' I was looking for when I was approached by the garden keeper and was asked "What are you doing"? DUH?!!
I was really satisfied to successfully captured the Brown-throated Sunbird (Anthreptes malacensis) true colors. Their dark metallic coloration can really fool cameras. Good shot! I think so.
As you already know, my buddies and I went to the Crocker Range, Tambunan frequently not too long ago. I have to tell you I miss the place very much! I am so desperate to get better shots of these birds(You'll understand why? they are beautiful birds!), check out;
Notice the greenish film on the bottom part of the pic? Wished it was bokeh, but unfortunately not! Had to blend in with the vegetation to get a closer shot at this beautiful bird. Got great help from my camo!
