Yellow Vented Bulbul

I failed to catch you many times before, but not this time. I was by chance to be at the back of you. My camera reacted, zoomed in and have you in my post now.

I was good enough to continue shooting. I had surely sneaked up on you like a cat.

But you turned your head back, and teased me, "Have you had enough of me?"

I was so wrong by then, somehow I had captured you for the first time.

Congratulations for capturing that Yellow Vented Bulbul! A little gnat-catcher has been teasing me for about a year now.

You sneaked up very carefully to get your good photos of the bulbul.

Sometimes I have my camera ready, but I am not ready. Can't blame the camera.

Icy BC:
"have you had enough of me? why did you turn me into a superstar?"

Fight back. How can this little critter keep teasing at us!!

How can you read my mind? I am feeling the danger.

Another bird I never heard of. But I love the sound of the name! Does it have a touch of yellow under its tail?

You snuck up and caught him by surprise. You have to teach me how to do that. I can never capture birds.
