Obviously, the weather was far from perfect. It drizzled when I went into the reception to pay the RM3.00 fee. I smiled when I register in...a familiar name just above mine, Karim M. One of the hard-core birders around.
It was quiet as I slowly walked towards the hide. I didn't even see any egret, which is common there. "Is this one of the days when I'll go home empty handed?" I asked myself. After about an hour or so in the hide, with no activities whatsoever, I mounted my 1.4X to try my luck on the Purple Herons nesting on the far end of the swamp areas.
I made a few attempts but the results were not desirable. Frustrated, I started to pack my gear and ready to move when an opportunity came knocking. Taken at frame-filling sizes, the ugly background is the least of my concerns... Enjoy;
Indeed these are my best action shots of this bird ever... Thank you for reading!
