Grey-capped Woodpecker Kg Kuala Paya

Lifer #129. Sighted a pair of Grey-capped Woodies picking away the bark of a fallen tree. The camouflage matches very well with the colour of the bark. The evening sun casts beautiful colour in the bird's front. Not exactly sharp shot.

The weight of the equipment putting strain on the tripod. Had to use MUP + cable to get most of my shots lately. Waiting for Aug.
