Silver-breasted Broadbill (Serilophus lunatus)

female (left) and male (right)

This Silver-breasted Broadbill surely an icon for Bukit Tinggi, Pahang-Malaysia
There are so many of this bird at the Botanical Garden area. Not afraid of human during this breading season (February to May)

Salam Redzlan,
A fine capture of this pair of Silver-breasted Broadbills taken from an ideal POV with suitable use of a tripod in the low lighting to give good sharpness against the suitable OOF natural Bg and the composition is excellent.
Thanks for sharing this fine image of a beautiful species that I think is new to TN!
Greetings from Sweden,

Hallo Redzlan
What a delightful scenery, filled with colour, style and of course two beautiful birds. To look at this pair is indeed a pleasant sight. I just love the way how the different colours of feathers just fit in with one another. Like a puzzle's pieces coming together to complete the picture. I also like the stroke of grey-blue coloured feathers on their heads. It is a lovely "picture". Thanks for sharing.
Best regards

Hello Redzlan,
What a cute pair , these two Silver-breasted Broadbills! You caught them both in a nice pose. It would have been even better if you could have changed your position a little bit, to have a more neutral background.
Well seen!
Best regards
