Yellow-Bellied Prinia

24th January 2010,  Bukit Tinggi, Pahang


This Yellow-Bellied Prinia was together with their cousins the Rufescent Prinia, moving as a group while making lots of happy sound.         _DSC0632



  1. A technical question if I may?

    What lens were you using and did you have the teleconverter on?

    Although I use Canon equipment I have been considering a 70-300mm + 1.4 teleconverter to try and get some half decent shots of small birds.

    In your opinion is this possible?

    Almost forgot-great photos.

  2. Hi Mike,
    I was using the 300mm f4 + 1.4x TC. I wouldn't recommend using a TC on any zoom lens, my personal experience with my Nikkor 80-400mm VR + TC was quite dissapointing. I would limit the use of TC for prime lenses.

  3. Look like "Yellow" is a theme of the day at Bukit Tinggi.
    Beautiful, no easy to photograph this active bird.
