A Trick

This must be a trick.

The fern leaves have dyed themselves golden yellow into which a Stripe-throated bulbul merges itself so well. It then tries to perch quietly to trick me, but the big brother unintentionally discloses its position: the bulbul has to avoid itself repeatedly from the glaring sunlight.

This must be a trick in the morning. Nature always wants to play games with me. I am smart enough this time to spot the bulbul.

This makes me feeling very great, no matter of the smallness of the success.

That is a pretty bird, isn't it?

Somebody from the army must have copied the bulbul's idea and make camourflage clothes for their soldiers.

I think it is a great success to spot this pretty bird in spite of its camouflage.

Next time you also must join them; camouflage well and take some macro shots. :)

Indeed, you've outsmartted a bulbul! You have to and I know what you mean (the other half is the lighting) You know, this same fern is what we have too..it makes up our forest. I do know you must have more of a variety of birds and animals though. I was thinking this morning, I'll just treat those silly lizards like another flower?

This seems to be a large success. Taking pictures of birds is tricky. I believe they are camera shy.

Rainfield, he blends right in and is playing hide n seek with you. But, you are not only too smart for that, you know that territory as well as you know yourself. Fantastic shots.

That branch hardly looks strong enough to support the bird!

We were not tricked either. We can see the bulbul too.

I like the Koo gua, but it is expensive here.

Such a tiny little creature. It would be easy to step upon it but I am sure it would rapidly fly away if you got too close. He is really blending in with all the foliage.
