Asian Openbill

Post by mun on Tue Mar 26, 2013 10:34 am

Counted about 120 of them last weekend in Penang and that is the highest number I have personally encountered so far. This young bird was perched quite low for a change and provided me with an opportunity to photograph it against a green background instead of the usual bright sky.

Nice one with pleasant BG instead of the usual ground, high perch or flight shots Smile

Nice shots.
Haven't got time to hunt for this, believe it is almost time for them go back now.

Too bad, I can't find them here, so can only savor your nice one.

The Openbill is a type of stork that has recently found its way to Malaysia.

Thank you for your comment.
