Trogon of Bukit Tinggi, Pahang, 30 May 2009

Bird photography is a combination of technique, being at the right place at the right time and most of all ‘luck’.

Went looking for Trogons at Bukit Tinggi and luck was surely on my side today! Immediately after parking the car near the gate to the Japanese Garden I was greeted by the sight of a pair of Trogons.


A female Orange-Breasted Trogon (Harpactes oreskios). The male was somewhere nearby but not clearly visible. I love the beautiful combination of striking colours and the vermiculations on the wings.

Awesome colours.
This is a lifer.
