A closer look at the White Throated's Prey.
Notice the organ(Likely a stomach) of the fish outside of it's mouth. Kingfishers trash their preys onto the perch they are on before consuming it.
A White Throated Kingfisher parent is photographed feeding it's young(Left) with an extremely fresh catch(A fish in this case).
Was trekking through a random forest in hopes of finding something elusive to photograph. Spotted this fiery little dot (about the size of a clenched fist) among the greens deep in the forest. Strangely, there was not a single stream spotted nearby. Was rewarded with this winter visitor resting on a perch.
Blue Eared Kingfisher photographed at last light of the day.
This elusive fella is just about the size of your clenched fist.
I had to go back to the same spot for about a month on and off just for this shot!
A Common Kingfisher flies back onto the branch after an unsuccessful dive/catch. I had to anticipate the few branches that it would land back on after every dive. I finally managed to get this frontal angle of it landing onto the branch after waiting for approx an hour.

A Photograph of the moon shot on 22nd March 2009, 10,29pm GMT+8 from my home window.
A Brown hawk Owl gives me an intense stare after sunset,where it begins it's daily night routine. I was photographing and video recording it for a good 30minutes. Notice the 1 legged roosting position! After I left the location, it was still calling on the exact same perch.
A little Egret is photographed stalking it's prey in shallow waters. Used to be a common sighting all over Singapore a few years back during the winter season.
A photograph of the Malayan Brown Snake in it's hunting position. It was in this position for a good 30mins at least scanning the surroundings.
I observed that this was a few moments before it tried to strike at it's prey, but it went back to it's normal stand up stance as the frog/toad jumped off from it's attacking radius.
A Mosquito is photographed refilling it's stomach from the Oriental Whip Snake's head
This Tree Snake was slightly longer than an arm's length. It slithered away soon after this photograph as taken.
A Grey Headed Fish Eagle managed to successfully snag it's prey on it's 2nd attempt just before last light. Check out the size of those talons! Light was not in my favour on the day and shutter speed was insufficient to completely freeze the water.
Oriental Pied Hornbill flipping a ficus fruit into it's mouth during its feed before night came shortly after.
A White Bellied Sea Eagle diving sequential photograph. I managed to get this sequence after about a few weeks of going back to the same location every single evening.
I was able to photograph this flycatcher in the open as it was perching on an exposed branch in an uncluttered area hunting/catching insects in the air.
This Oriental Magpie Robin was just too inquisitive. It actually almost went too near to a human(myself) for comfort.
As I was photographing this flycatcher, I was enjoying it's constant melodious call. 1 of the most pleasing natural sounds I have ever heard, just like in the movies.
Spotted Doves are common in Singapore but I hardly have the chance to photograph it perched nicely on a branch. Was lucky that I managed to photograph it at a sweet spot before it flew off.
This green crested Lizard photographed is about half the length of an arm inclusive of it's tail.
Sadly it is no longer a common sight in Singapore and it is slowly being dominated by the smaller and fiercer Changeable Lizard.
A lesser Whistling duck swims calmly through a pond in it's daily routine.
I shot this Lesser Tree Whistling duck from the lowest angle I could go just to get the foreground/background in the image.
It was the last golden hour of the day and the sun was giving a pretty intense glow and heat. This huge Juvenile Heron was exposing it's underside of it's wings to the sun for maximum exposure before the night comes.
