    Nesting Colony

    Advertise here
    photomalaysia@gmail.com

    All these shots are taken from a distance well over 30m.
    Using 300-800 zoom with a 2X crop sensor and images are also cropped.
    Photog was on the shoulder of the main road adjacent to the colony.
    In no way, were any of the bird, nestling or nest harm during this time.

    If these shots are deem inappropriate, Mr Moderator may remove the thread.

    Anyway, hope you like them :|

    Looks like the place in Alor Gajah.... It was recently gazetted as wild life / birds sanctuary by the state government. The birds were seen nestling that place for quite sometime already...

    Sorry Phoo, after these were taken I've not gone back there to shoot yet.

    Yup, its natural flavouring, no artificial lighting added.

    Saiful, this place is much closer to home than Alor Gajah.

    Somewhere in Rawang, ask around the locals probably will point you to the right direction.

    I like the first one, looks like 3D image. The 300-800 is a Sigma lens?
