Blues of a Crowned Pigeon

When I first saw these little (not exactly little but around the size of a small turkey) birds walk around me, I was truly amazed by their appearance. I have never seen anything quite like it. They have these amazing blue feathers but their fiery red eyes stand out like a little solar eclipse. The saturated red rings beckons you to look at it with wonder causing me to be truly humbled by the miracles of nature.

The western crowned pigeon is among the largest pigeon in the world and is also considered as the most beautiful member of the pigeon family. They can live a life-span of over 20 years. Due to ongoing habitat loss, limited range and overhunting in some areas, the western crowned pigeon is evaluated as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Photo taken with Canon 60D and EF-S 18-135mm.

Portrait of a Peruvian Pelican

"Many a man curses the rain that falls upon his head, and knows not that it brings abundance to drive away the hunger."

Saint Basil

I love how the rain forces me to slow down sometimes when I am out shooting. We always tend to move too fast from one thing to another and fail to notice the little gems in each moment. This portrait couldn't have been possible if not for taking shelter under the heavy rain.

I have seen a lot of pelicans but this was the first time I actually took notice of a black one. This is a Peruvian Pelican and she is classified as a near-threatened species.

Love,
Darren

Portrait of a Superb Starling

We have quite a number of species of Starlings here in Singapore. Most of them have such intense colors and they are so beautiful in their own rights. Whenever you see too much of anything, it is easy to overlook them and take them for granted. One of the most common birds in Singapore, the house sparrow, are actually quite beautiful too but no one notices them just because they are so common.

It is through photography that one singles out each bird and appreciate them for the individuality that they are. All birds and animals are unique, just like every person you meet on the planet. When you notice the individual characteristics of each being, you will never see the world the same way again.

Have a wonderful day dear friends!

Love,
Darren

Portrait of a Southern Rockhopper Penguin

My first and only encounter with a Rockhopper Penguin, other than in the movie Happy Feet that is. The Southern Rockhopper Penguin is classified as a vulnerable species. The overall population of Rockhopper Penguin was said to have decreased 90% since the early 20th century.

Hope everyone is having a great time this weekend!

Portrait of a Great Curassow

This is my first encounter of this large magnificent bird which reminds me of one of my favorite birds, the Great Blue Turaco. Although they seemed to be of two very different species.

This beautiful bird is yet another vulnerable species classified under the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Enjoy your weekend dear friends!

Love,
Darren
