ABC Wednesday: J is for Japanese White-eye (綠繡眼)


I was so encourged by my success of photographing birds on the cotton tree on Thursday, that I went on Saturday, March 21 by myself to Taipei Botanical Garden to try my luck again.  There were quite a few bird photographers with tripods and huge telephoto lenses around.  I had my 70-300 VR lens and had the advantage of being very mobile.  I saw this little yellow bird came to a nearby bush to feed.  


I was able to get several quick shots.  I found out later that it is a common bird called Japanese White-eye, Zosterops japonicus, it can be found in southern Japan, Taiwan and many parts of China.  It is a good "J" for me.

You do have a way with bird photography. I don't know the bird here, but I know a good photo when I see it!

Good for you! Sometimes tripods do slow photographers down a bit. Being mobile was a great advantage here. ;-)

Great shots and a good choice for J.

I noted the use of the 70-300 VR and have looked back through your posts; wonderful shots and some great advice on Nikon and techniques. I have recently bought a D90 and have a 70-300 VR.

I guess that bird is not easy to capture on camera. Thanks for sharing

Ooh, I LOVE his coloring! Great shots, especially the first one. There is definitely something to be said for being mobile with your camera when things around you are changing.
