Assalamualaikum Rezlan,
Tahniah atas dapatan bintang pertama dari Trek. Sya dah katakan ada berpotensi di TN. Teruskan posting dan komen anda untuk mendapat Bintang Emas pulak. Satu lagi, Photographer's note tu kena panjang sebab tidak dibenarkan mark kalau terlalu pendek. Tahniah!

You have beautiful Bulbul here. All the details are exposed in vivid colors and clarity. Very well done and thanks for sharing with us this beautiful bird. I like it!

p/s: I'm stuck in this concrete jungle for a few days - I guess no new birds captured for now.

Hello Redzlan,
Beautiful species well captured with your excellent camera work. Great details and colors in this nice composition, thanks for sharing.

Hi Redzlan,
An excellent image!
I like so much the close approach and good details got on the bird's plumage.
The contrast made by the light and yellow feathers works great against the dark green background.
You had a very good collection of Malaysian birds!
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,
