Kengoh, do you get your pictures of birds in Singapore? Where?

I am going there for a couple of weeks work in a week from now. But a strange bit of work - I work at night and have the days with lots of free time.
Hi Tim, welcome to Singapore, I've PMed you.


Was gald to be able to shoot this migratory kingfisher, I really love kingfishers, hope they visit my country more often.

Blue Eared Kingfisher

After an unfortunate winter in Utah where the usual shooting subjects were in short supply then a relocation to the desert southwest that has provided far fewer things to shoot I've spent some time at Nellis AFB to catch the planes coming and going. The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds are based out of Nellis and apparently they train once a week so I put my camera to work.

Two shots of the same exotic kingfisher. Amazing. Nicely done, both of you!

Great Kingfisher shots Ken and iittoo!

An Asian butterfly exhibit just opened up at our local botanic gardens so I'm using the K-3 and DA*300mm in a different way. Still lots of fun.

Cross posted from post your photos...
K-3
DA* 60-250 + FA 1.7 TC
ƒ8, 1/125 sec. 800 ISO

Just hanging out at the feeder.





It happens a few times a day, there might be 40 birds out there, then they hear something, and they all take off, except, there always seems to be one that doesn't hear the alarm.

this time, this is the guy

Very nice! Please consider posting these in the "Aviation" group!

Thanks @RobG I'll check out the aviation group! I may have to relocate since my subjects lack feathers and interesting birds are few and fat between around me.

I don't think you need to relocate..... I think that the earlier post was just asking you to "also" post the plane shots on the aviation thread (which I didn't know existed!)... so by all means keep posting. Anything using the long lenses is fair game as far as I am concerned.
