bulbul and cranes
« on: August 21, 2011, 05:16:26 AM »
Birds are happy to see the daytime rains ending.

Red whiskered Bulbul came out this morning on a coconut tree near our balcony.






A group of cranes fly past our apartment every evening. Had been trying to shoot them and partly succeeded last evening. The light was very low due to rain clouds. shot these in SPORTS mode.

Nice shots. It is a pity that the light did not allow for the, much coverted, eye glint, that all the birding forums want in pictures of small birds.  I am viewing on the old work monitor so I may have missed something..

What part of the world are you in, we only get the butter bum ( Yellow tailed) bulbuls here in Johannesburg.

Thank you all for appreciating my efforts.

Gengis - I am from India though work in the UAE. Now on vacation in my hometown called Aluva in the southern state of Kerala and having a shot at a new bird every morning. One thing I know now is morning is best time for shooting birds when they are all out hunting for  their breakfast. There are a lot of trees around my apartment that are full of birds in mornings but due to the foliage I cannot see them from my balcony;-( . Due to intermittent rains I do not want to go out and wet my lenses.
