The Puff-throated Babbler or Pellorneum ruficeps is also called the Spotted Babbler is a quiet bird foraging on forest grounds of a lot countries in Asia and also a difficult one to take a perfectly good shot as it moves a lot and always stays under the shade of the forest. I have taken so many photographs of this bird and yet when it appears I always make it a point take another shot; there is always something better.


One of the birds that popped out from the forest, hopping in for a show. The light source is very low and it is difficult when too much ISO is used to take in more light. Slower shutter speed is another risk to take, then blurring takes it away. A good sturdy tripod is always the most important tool in taking this shot, yeah, we know that. Another beautiful Babbler, tiny, yet an interesting one as well.
