Chestnut-Breasted Malkoha

26th September 2010, Kemensah, Selangor

My first Chestnut-Breasted Malkoha after the  long break. This one’s a female with yellow eyes.



  1. Great catch, the bird is not hiding in the bush. Use of flash very obvious, what setting did you use?

  2. I use manual flash setting, usually 1/16-1/64. In this case I forgot to change and shot at 1/1 ! Still difficult to lose the flash effect even after post processing. My camera is usually set on Manual with Shutter speed 1/125-1/200 aperture 7.1 iso 400.
