Birding at Kinabalu Park - SkyWatch Friday my # 7

This is what I got, trying to photographed bird without telephoto lenses, (ha..ha! do you see the flying bird?)
Mount Kinabalu (the highest peak in South East Asia) at the background.
The plant at the middle foreground is The Giant/King Fern (Angiopteris evecta) - the largest fern on earth!

What an amazing place! All my bird pictures look like that, so it's a good thing I love scenery!

Oh... summer and hot?? So different from our landscape at this moment. Cold and without no leavs on the tree. I really liked your shot!!

Beautiful - what lush greenery. Very nice! I'm happy that others out there shoot bird shots like I do - you make me feel right at home!

Rose said...

You may have been photographing to capture the bird, but you captured a beautiful shot along with it.

Lush greenery and beautiful sky. You live in one cool spot. Happy weekend.

Yes I see the bird, a bird of prey, I think. But most I love that lovely palm at the front. Well done.

I love the fern tree and the enlargement shows there's quite a bit going on here. A real treat.

Great shot! missed home already. Have to find time to go there in one of these days. Great place for birding.

Have a nice weekend!

Beautiful picture. Yes, I saw the bird. However, before I read your comments, the fern type plant in the foreground caught my eye. Thanks for sharing.

I love how the greenery frames the mountains -- it looks like a view into a magical world!

Wonderful view. I have the giant king fern in my garden; it flourishes. Thank you for stopping by and happy SWF.

Well, it's a lovely skywatch, even if you need to look closely for the bird. I've often thought of creating a photo series "There was a bird here a minute ago" or "No, really, there's a bird in the photo"

Nice shot bro..
The view of a jungle are not much different from Cameron Highlands, minus the Kinabalu mount.

CharmaineZoe said...
