Photography at a nature park

“Got an interesting photo from the Bukit Butok Nature Park on Sunday. I saw a flock of Pacific Swallows (Hirundo tahitica) play in the old quarry and perching on a dead branch of a tree in the centre of the pond. I took some causal shoots when I was waiting for the White-bellied Fish Eagle (Haliaeetus leucogaster) to return home. By the way, the juvenile White-bellied Fish Eagle which grew up from the transmission tower was still hanging around the pond.

“After carefully examining the photos, I found a pair of bird mating in front of the other four birds on the same branch (above, second from left). The process was so fast that I did not notices their action till I review it on the screen.”
