This flock of Egret flew past the Raub Golf Course, along the valley and Sempam river, sharp at 7.30am for the past few weeks. The show continues for about 20 minutes.
The 400mm lens hand held is ideal for this predictable flight path. The sun was supposed to be at my back, but not appear until 9am. Sigh!
I have seen this Red Junglefowl (Ayam Hutan) at the Raub Golf Course a few times, but very difficult to photograph. Only this morning I managed to capture it digitally. He was feeding on a putting green with a flock of Zebra Dove, so engrossed and didn't noticed me hiding nearby.
finally flew off when I get nearer.

"Do they not look at the birds, held poised in the midst of (the air and) the sky?
Nothing holds them up but (the power of) Allah.
Verily in this are signs for those who believe". Surah An-Nahl (The Bee) 16:79
"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)
