Hello Redzlan,

You have made a good in flight photo as it shows very well the pattern of the plumage. Colors are also well rendered despite the difficult lighting conditions.

Thank you for sharing,

Hi Redzlan
Nice inflight capture showing wonderful color and detail in the feathers despite harsh lighting.
Happy new year.

Salam Redzlan,

This is just beautiful. Caught in full spreading wings at super fast shutter speed. I like the sharpness and details exposure of the plumage and you have framed it perfectly for TN. All the best to you and your family.


Salam Dr. Redzlan
this is fantastic species for me. It has an accidental record from Turkiye. Inshallah, I can see it in one day. You captured it nicely. focus and composition very nice. Sharp details of underside of wing also nice. Thanks for sharing.
I wish a Happy New Year to you and your family too.
PS: I received your mail, thanks. I will write to you tomorrow, after checking books. Now, I can say it is a small Vespertilionidae members, e.g. Murina species. If you have another shots from different view, they will be useful for identification.
best wishes my friend, selams
