Hi,

This is my first post here although I have been enjoying the photos here for the past 6 months or so. Guess it's time I contribute :)


Regards,
TS

Good news for those who want to shoot the CKF - there are 3 (or more) CKFs in Japanese Garden. Perhaps the whole family is here!

The one I posted last week is a male CKF. Today, my friends and I saw 2 more female CKFs.

Hi Alfred81 - most of the time, they are over at the small pond in Japanese Garden, though sometimes they do fly over to the big pond (that one with Heron). They fly around quite a bit, and each time perching on a rock/tree for no more than a few minutes. I think their favorite perch is this rock in the center of the pond - probably the tallest rock there. The pond is not big, so if they are out there, you probably cannot miss them :)
