likas lagoon part 2

16th june 2008

nice weather this morning and after sending my fiance to her office, drove to likas lagoon again this time with karim and main mission, to get better shot of the cinnamon bittern and yellow-bellied prinia, only the latter with reasonable result :p

small patch of the lagoon near with the main road

it was sunny and windy at the same time, so digiscoping with fully extended aluminum tripod, cause lots of vibration which is visible through the lcd. an article i read from the internet stated that with carbon fibre tripod it takes only less than 2 seconds to dampened the vibration and with aluminum tripod, more than 4 seconds !

one thing that disappointed me is, i need to reset my camera function to macro and continuous shot (top 3) after i reviewed my previous shots and it has no programmable mode like what other cameras offered. so i tend to missed lots of opportunity of getting decent shot with my kit ...

my shot for today :p

yellow-bellied prinia (one of the difficult bird to digiscoped !)

not very good picture of this striated grassbird

purple swamphen and my favorite bird today

white-browed crake taken around 11.47 am this morning

pictures was digiscoped with nikon fieldscope ED82, srb-griturn Mk II adapter and fujifilm f31d
