Common Iora

A beautiful garden bird in Malaysia. This one was photograph in a mangrove area. Indeed beautiful this still put up some challenge for us. Into the dark and back into the light. Having using manual set up i have to continue to change my set up each time it get into the light and out. :)

Copper Throated Sunbird

A species, that is more commonly seen in mangrove area. Nevertheless it is not common throughout the coastline in Peninsula Malaysia. In some places this species is very difficult to be sighted however in some places this is rather easy to be seen. Still in this local spot of mine this species is rather common. Usually round in the area and require some waiting you will sure to see them around.
