The Plumbeous Redstart or Phoenicurus fulignosus is also called the Plumbeous Water Redstart is a passerine bird from the Old World Flycatcher, the Plumbeous Water Redstart is a cute fluffy bird which likes to be around fast moving streams. It was a pleasure and blessing watching this bird in the wild as it feeds and play in the water. Thanks a lot Khun Atiwich Ball for introducing us to this lovely fluffy ball-of-a-bird and for patiently leading us there.

In order for Arpha Vida Buga-ay and I to get the best shots that we could be satisfied, it took us two days enduring cold and limited movement inside our hide, staying flat on the ground all the time, straining back and neck muscles peeping into the viewfinder, hard work and careful planning. The frame was so full, I just had to make sure this fluff fits right into the frame according to my composition. I don’t own flashes or any prime lens this is just pure work in the wild.
