7th March 2010, Kemensah, Selangor

London, New York , Tokyo.

No, It was Ipoh, Seremban , Kemensah in 36 hours!

Ipoh to conduct a project  briefing, Seremban for an overnight family function and  whatever daylight left  late Sunday afternoon in Kemensah.

It was this little bird  who made my day, A  tiny Rufous Piculet, she flew onto this open  branch for about 3 seconds and came so close that these were almost full frame shots.

Saw a Piculet last week but it wasn’t this close.

  2. Very good, sharp and nice background.
    Unique dual coloured bill.
    With short tail, I wonder how it balanced its body while poking the hole searching for food.
