Congratulations to mallardg500 for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 9 votes - View Previous Winners


Part 4 of the trip: Silver-eared Mesia and Blue-throated Bee Eater - not as bad lighting as previous posts.

This Mesia can be found in abundance in one of the popular birding spots in Malaysia called Fraser's Hill - beautiful resort for relaxation as well as bird photography. Highly recommended.

1. Silver-eared Mesia

1/640 | f/8 | ISO 2500 | 800mm

2. Juvy begging for food from its mom

1/640 | f/8 | ISO 2500 | 800mm

3. In the rain

1/500 | f/8 | ISO 4000 | 800mm

4. Yellow on yellow

1/400 | f/7.1 | ISO 2500 | 800mm

5. Blue-throated Bee Eater of Pulau Indah

1/1000 | f/9 | ISO 2000 | 800mm

6. With a bee in the rain

1/2000| f/8 | ISO 1250 | 800mm

7. From a different angle

1/2000 | f/8 | ISO 1250 | 800mm

8. Feeding the juvy

1/1250 | f/9 | ISO 1000 | 800mm + 1.4X = 1120mm

9. More feeding

1/1600 | f/9 | ISO 1000 | 800mm + 1.4X = 1120mm

10. In-flight but quite a crop

1/1000 | f/6.3 | ISO 1250 | 800mm

Thanks for looking.

Phoo, I agree wholeheartedly with (and have very little to add to) what Tim and Tom had to say. The Silver-eared Mesia is a beautiful bird, and that first shot is really spectacular. A privilege to see these images, and an inspiration. ~Greg

I think I'd hang my camera up after getting a set this strong. What else is there to strive for? Beauties, with #1 being an absolute beauty. Many hats off to you Phoo.

Thank you much Tim. Everyone should plan a birding trip to Malaysia and Thailand one day - during birds migration season - as you can see despite my trip being rather late of the year yet I was able to enjoy much still.
