One of the rules and regulations of the Borneo Bird Festival 2009 photography contest. One that made all nature photographers including myself went havoc in search of the winning photograph during that period. It was USD1000.00 for grab, who wouldn't?
Well, me at first! Discussions after duscussions with my best buddy Alphonsus, finally concluded that I should compete.
I am not really into competition. Why? lots of reasons really...guess one and you are probably almost...right. I'm sure of it!
Another challenge was to capture an "interesting bird behavior", which is obviously not easy. After spending many weekends in the foothill of Mt. Kinabalu, I was sure that an "interesting behavior" is not easy to capture.
Weather can quickly change in the mountains. My setup was far from ideal on those conditions. Running on a budget, have to make do with whatever I have obviously. I didn't want ISO issues to cloud my mind.
There we were, two good buddies waited for the thick fog to go by and make way for the sunshine...
The first day was bad and unfortunately, the second day was not any better...contest-wise. 'Otherwise'?...not too bad I guess;-
