Birds at Sungai Rambah


When they say you need patience in birds photography, I did not know that it could run for a few days in a row.  I only knew it when I started to present myself at the same spot over and over again for a few days straight.  As I did not use hide nor did I wear camo painted military-like apparel, I must have stuck out like a sore thumb.  They kept their distance away from me and the kingfisher totally out of sight.  Only when I’m starting to become a familiar sight that they started to move nearer and appear.  Lesson learned and I’m starting to enjoy and appreciate the rewards.

Here are a few photos from the recent successive trips to Sungai Rambah at Pontian, Johor.
