I often say I became interested in birds only after I acquired my zoom lens. Then I could bring the birds closer and ask my more knowledge friends to identify them for me. And gradually it grew on me. I don’t have any super zooms, only a 70-300 mm lens. So to get a reasonable picture I am actually at the mercy of the bird. If it lets me inch closer I get a decent shot, if not then I try another bird! So when I got an opportunity to research and visit some of the birding sites in Malaysia I did a piece on Hotspots for birding in Malaysia. Do check it out.
