Sun 16 th Shawwal 1428

My computer's clock already shows 12:01 AM, Sun
when I posted this full moon.
But Blog's shows 11:59 PM.

This full shawwal moon taken with 560mm at f5.6

Compare it with 16th Ramadhan shoot.
Woodpecker- Common Flameback

(Dinopium javanense)






















Testing 1.4x TC with pins taped

This is my LIFER




400mm + 1.4x TC with 3 pins taped, can AF in good light.
Really enjoy my new lenses.
The only minor problem is - 'steel eyes'.
Extension cord and flash bracket will correct it.

Crap Bird's Pics

I don't know the ID of this bird.
Crappy shoots, difficult -very fast moving bird.











After searching the Net, I think this bird's ID is:-

Common Tailorbird Perenjak Pisang
(Orthotomus sutorius)

? Hawk

This is not a hawk / eagle,
but a Javan Myna
(Acridotheres javanicus)

Starlings

Juvenile

Asian Glossy Starling - Perling Mata Merah
(Aplonis panayensis)

No new species

Nothing new, the same old species.
Just to practice the Better Beamer - Flash Extender , and 'melepaskan gian!'.
While waiting for my 400mm arrive this Thursday.


































Look at this Sun Bird's eyes.
The steel eye/white eye, effect of flash too near the lens - equivalent of red eyes in human retina.

Abandon

Visited my late mother/father's house during the Hari Raya recently.

Nearly cried when I took these pics and posted it here.

The house where I was raised.






the stairs...












nobody looking after it...












my mom's shoes...












my father's handsaw...


















Maksudnya : Ya Allah! Ampunilah bagiku segala dosaku dan juga dosa dua ibu bapaku dan kasihanilah mereka keduanya sebagaimana mereka memelihara dan mendidikku di masa kecil.

 
"Do they not see the birds above them, spreading out their wings and folding them in? None upholds them except the Most Beneficent (Allah). Verily, He is the All-Seer of everything".
Surah Al-Mulk (67:19)
