Chestnut-naped Forktail

July 16 2010. Over the past few days, I was trying very hard to photograph the Chestnut-naped Fork-tail at Ulu Paip lowland forest. I was lucky and successful in getting the Blue-banded Kingfisher but it was non-success for the Fork-tail. 
I realized that the Chestnut-naped Fork-tail is a very shy and smart bird. It always sensitives to human present. During a few instances, I was wearing a camouflage netting and hid under a tree.  The Fork-tail some-how knew about my present there. It diverted away from me when it approached my hiding location although I was along the flight path. I only managed to get 2 blur pictures of the Fork-tail so far. I am still looking for ways to get near to it. Hopefully my hard work will bring success soon. Here are the 2 blur photos :

Hi Taiko Wong,

I still not giving up on pursuing this fella. This fella move rapidly even after landed on the ground. I miss out locking focus on it many times. But after observing it for many days, started to familiar with it behavior.
Moving closer to get better shots. :)
