He won't allow me to go 10 meters close to him, everytime I get close, he flies to
opposite of the pond. After chasing three times, I gave up. :sweat: :sweat: :sweat: :sweat:

Birds are like that. It is not because they are shy, but mainly because of their instincts. They think you are going to hammer them with your birding mama.

AF-S 600mm f/4D IF-ED II. :D

Just to share, there was one bird (not kingfisher or crow or pigeon) that allowed me to shoot about less than a metre away from it. And it was happily preening (is that how you spell it?) itself. Really. It was a bird the size of a sparrow and I could get a close up of it using (not) my 300mm.

Squirrels are much more cooperative, but they don't make good subject and
always hide in trees. I saw tens of them in Tiger Bam resort last time.

It must be sunbird. I also saw a number of them in the garden behind my office, pecking
among flowers and allow me walk really close to it, but not able to take cameras during
work time.
