    Very nice shots. D2xs + 600mm are best combination that make even more better pictures and will not disappoint when go round Malaysia. More birds to be shotted at Mount Kinbalu National Parks. Want more and quicker birds, contact our PM member horukuru. By that time where you want to put your bird pictures will be full in the basket. hehehe
    Good luck anyway.

    Re: Blue-throated & Blue-tailed Bee Eater

    Actually I came back from Mt Kinabalu this June. Didn't manage to take any birds photo as I'm damn tired during the hike. Do saw many rare birds around and some of them even few feet away from me.
    Planing to go again this year maybe October, can meet up then.
