I went to Ang Mo Kio Garden early in the morning for appointment shooting with Mr. Robbie. He was late, so I have to wait for him for about 30mins and do preparations of my camera and tripod.

Whoala! At last... I saw this fella flying swiftly and landed on his favorite perch. I managed to take a several shots with different settings and finally got his portrait shot.
Comments and critiques are most welcome. Thanks

camera set-up:
shooting at manual mode with remote switch, manual focusing, Lens Tamron 180mm+12mm+36mm extension tubes, Sigma Macro Ringflash (-2)2nd-rear curtain sync, tripod mounted, auto-white balance.

Very nice detail and colours. Something that I do not understand is how 2 seconds of shutter speed and flash came together. Anyway, very good work.
