Paddyfield Pipit (Anthus rufulus)

This is my first test using the DIY Bean Bag that I made.
I drove my car slowly at logging track at Batu 18 (18th mile), Batu Malim in Raub - Malaysia.
With my left hand on the car's steering and right hand holding the camera on top of Bean Bag. Suddenly one small bird flew in and perched on the log, and I stopped my car. Fired a shot in high speed continuous mode, and managed to captured 17 frame before the bird flew off.

Salam Redzlan,
I always envy your bird shot. i know it is not that difficult to shoot one. This one is lovely and cute. the background is great blurry to give the beauty of the head in its sharpness.
Nice shot and great presentation.
