It’s One of Those Days

It’s almost like the Lone Ranger without  Silver , Rambo without guns, or Ronaldo without his boots.

Thats how I feel  now without my 400mm lens! Last Saturday, the tripod toppled over and I was told after sending in for repairs that the Autofocus mechanism had broken, sigh. Fortunately it fell on soft ground which had quite thick grass, the camera body is still OK.

The same day  Ilyas’s flashgun dropped off from the hotshoe while walking out from Kemensah. Apparently the plastic holding the screws had given way. Another big sighhhhhhh.

Well, pretty much out of commission this week.

Anyway, here’s something I dug up from the old album






  1. so sorry to hear that. Reason to upgrade ?

    I dropped my entire set up when I was birding with Jason near the blue eared KF...thank goodness, nothing was damaged. I was a little lucky I guess.

  2. Oh.. last time you mirror got fried and now this thing happened.
    Never mind, just Click HERE. ;)

  3. Sorry to hear about that. I don't know how I'll react if I don't have my birding equipment with me.
