Large Niltava

I had photographed the male (right) Niltava on numerous occasion, even though they are usually seen together, I never had a chance to photograph them perched together, at least not until recently.

@Hemmant Trail, Fraser's Hill.

Happy birding

Wow, nice one ! The first time I see people post both male & female perched the same location .

hi yen, I had looked at the wikipedia page but all it said was that it was a flycatcher. I just wondered if you have some insider info on why they are so cool.

Dale, I am not an Ornithologist. Sorry. Just loving being out there in the woods taking photograph of birds and whatever that comes along.

...but you are a great photographer! and I bet you are just as much fun to hang out with in person as in cyberspace - hopefully one day we can meet up!

Dale,

Thanks for visiting time and agian. My photograph are mostly static portraits and static potraits are of anything are boring. Show birds doing something interesting. Show them singing, flying, playing with their friends, or anything that makes them birds. As for the Large Niltava, the Male caught an insect mid air which I missed and was joined by his partner. When she came, he was feeding her which I missed again just before this shot was taken. My lens Canon f5.6 L don't work well under low light condition. i wished to share with all interesting shots, we will see how well I progress/improve.
As of now, these are boring photographs. Anyhow, thanks again for visiting repeatedly.
