The Chestnut-Winged Babbler: The Phantom of the Rainforest

An opportunity to go to Sandakan last August was not to be missed. Made possible by the reasonably fair air-fare of Airasia (..and a nod from the wife and kids!), off I went.

I packed both cameras this time around. The old and under-utilized Sony and my Canon. The Sony had to be put to work...I thought. The video function is worth trying as well. Afterall, it's much more lighter than my DSLR.

Video recording proved be very challenging specially under the canopy in Sepilok. The AF struggled and was quite a nightmare. However, I did managed to record the phantoms of the rainforest-enjoy;-

i find it difficult to photograph this bird because they are very agile, what more when you try to film them, well done Jordan.
