Salam Brother,
this one is another excellent capture from you. I would say you are running amois with the brilliant bird capture.
well presented with excellent pose, sharpness, clarity and unique bird with unique local name.
Well done, hope to see more of the local birds which I have difficulty in capturing them.


Hi Redzlan ,
So nice work at great moment.

Kind regards

Hello Redzlan,
Awesome picture of this upside down bird.
Great lighting, close approach and proper focus to enjoy this unusual pose.
The neutral background helps to stand up even more the yellow of the feathers.
Congratulations and thanks for share.
Best regards,

Wow!!!Excellent Pose Capture...Tfs

Salam Tabib,

A wonderful shot again from you, attractive colours and very sharp image. Bravo and TFS.


Salam Rezlan.

That 400mm L lens are surely fruitful as I have seen many new addition to your gallery. This is very nice upside-down perch on bottle brush plant (I'm not sure if I have encountered this plant around my place). The red flower and spiderhunter make excellent contrast in the frame. Beautifully silenced background and very sharp image presented.

Well done and thanks for sharing.
