  • A few birds of the Philippines

    I'm not really a bird photographer but I was with my family in the Philippines for a couple of weeks earlier in the month and sometimes the birds simply beg to be photographed

    So here are a few I recorded:



    This is an olive-backed sunbird attracted to the flowers on the 6th floor of my aunt's apartment block where she has her garden, including a large collection of orchids. It's in the middle of the city.



    Also in my aunt's penthouse city garden, a pair of Yellow-vented bulbuls.



    Finally, a blue-tailed bee-eater, photographed darting up and down the river at the Villa Escudero plantation/resort outside Manila we visited for the day (about a 60% crop). Here's a more fitting crop:



    The bee-eater was shot using an elderly 14-150 m.Zuiko!

    Sleek seems to be an under-statement!
