ALL ABOUT THE SUBJECT,THE PHOTOGRAPHER AND THE AUTHOR

Alex Chan, a  professional photographer of Malaysia with his club members captured the shots of migrating birds that flies through the blue skies of Malaysia. Just to catch the glimpse of these beautiful birds, They made the most of this opportunity by taking river cruises to spot  the migrating egrets along the  Perak river of Teluk Intan.  Perhaps, having a great name means a great deal of responsibility to share images, good news and events.  All photographs was majestic and impressive that  I would like to share with you. This  is  my story and my  gift to share with the world. Not even a story that was told many times. This is a quality work in perfecting the shots with his camera. You can see it by yourself. Be the judge!

His camera shines giving the freedom to capture life in different forms. Alex says, ‘’My passion for the birds and having a camera that match our vision is imperative. I photographed  birds in natural habitat and my mission is to save it. I have taken my camera everywhere with me around. A camera that I can depend on. Something that would be the least of my worries so I can concentrate on capturing the birds. When you are shooting on a trip, you must be ready always. Photography is quiet a difficult and challenging task, the exposure of image and apparent brightness is very important. It’s hard to locate the birds, they hardly ever stay still.  you can’t go closely and approach them. This is the kind of gear that delivers great image performance, quality that you can rely on it. This model is more than enough for sharing it on web’’…..

STORY OF EGRETS -THE MIGRATORY BIRDS (Part1) I love birds.The only creatures on earth with the gifts of both flight and beauty.  Watching birds indoor and outdoor brings me closer to nature….

STORY OF EGRETS -THE MIGRATORY BIRDS (Part2) In here, You can see the professional photographers capturing the scenes …

V-FORMATION OF THE EGRETS  Egrets used V- formation when migrating.  Amazing! I only live once to see this and I was very happy. I felt like, I was very close to nature to see the heavenly blue sky….

 

 CONSERVATION MESSAGE  FROM THE AUTHOR 

None of us wants animal to suffer and inspite of many times people made mistakes.  We, the generation of today never want to go through what they have encountered before. The youth of today never tends to shut off. We will continue to serve and save them. I want to make it clear, I don’t want to use animals to teach humans. I just want you to know that, It is the responsibility of humans to love and care for the animals.

It is clear that when we set to cover this issueWe wanted to teach and be informed about beauty and awareness of nature.  Our understanding and awareness is to save the beautiful birds. This is the reason why the main subject is the ”Egrets”. When I get the urge to start a work, I usually focus to more educational and informative expressing my own thoughts about it, honest opinions and ideas. I choose to contribute to the welfare of the animals, not only as a  working professional but also an animal lover. I want to share and express my hopes and dreams for them. My hope  is to stop and not  tolerate ignorance, especially the killings of the Egrets thus,  not to face extinction. My dreams for them is to to see them free and live with them forever. I hope these will make us realize the need to preserve and high time to make serious effort to save the egrets. 

Sadly, some spectacular species have died out in former habitats because of human activities. Now, The sightings of the spectacular Egrets in Malaysia is a reminder to all Malaysians and to the rest of the world about the role of humans as stewards of the planet earth.  We should not abandon our role in environmental conservation and preservation so that animals like egrets do not completely disappear and follow the path of other animals that became extinct because human actions and intervention weren’t enough to save them.

I hope that in our own way, We help raise awareness for the protection of the wild birds. Me, and  Alex   wish that our children, and children of our children’s children will still behold the beauty of the egrets long after our generation has goneHelp protect and restore key habitats for threatened and declining migrant and endemic species. Be part of crucial campaigns to reduce threats to birds. Egrets were threatened by hunting for their feathers, more threatened by habitat destruction and pollution.

 It is very clear that , this is a coverage of conservation, as far as the birds are concerned threatening their numbers, I am planning to make a trip to Malaysia this year and after seeing what Malaysia actually is from Pixel Pro Photography pics, I can’t just wait for months to come. Eventually, Alex came up with shots worth publishing. Each picture was mind-blowing and beautiful.I would like to thank  Pixel Pro Photography, Malaysia and to all club members for providing images and for the kind permission to reproduce all photos. Thank you very, very much.

Micky Mouse Flower

By on September 5, 2011

Today is a sunny day and I decided to take a stroll around my backyard and I was surprised  to see my flowers blooming into something more than I ever imagined. My garden became  the  most comfortable and a private place to relax. It has a greatful simplicity view especially if you see  blooming flowers with butterflies, and the bees around it. Not to mention the presence of hummingbirds  as the prettiest visitors.It really draws  attention and welcoming glow  eventhough,  It has been neglected over the past weeks. Oh yes! This is the right time to express my satisfaction because of my hardwork and patience working in the garden. Now, Let me show you one of my favourite  flower  in my own backyard that attracts immediate attention,

This is a Mickey Mouse Flower. It’s so beautiful that It draws too much attention and welcoming glow to my visitors.  It exudes an atmosphere which is compellingly different. You don’t need wealth to create a beautiful or ideal garden of distinction, What you need is a good taste to make good effects and a working knowledge in selecting a good flower like these. Anyway, Hard work pays off and it’s worth it.
