As most of you know, I am a birder. I am also lucky enough to have some very fine digiscoper friends (bird photographers who use a digital camera attached to a telescope), folk who drop superb photographs of birds into my inbox every now and then. When you use a telescope, you can get amazing shots like this one without disturbing the birds.
I loved this so much I asked the photographer, Ooi Beng Yean – who has to be the finest of the lot – if I could show you all. These chicks were taken up in Perak last October. Note the hands on hips posture!
