White Breasted Waterhen

Fujifilm X T1
XC 50-230mm F4.5-6.7 OIS
Saraburi, Thailand

I tried to create my own composition shooting this bird within the camera absent enhancements from Photoshop or Lightroom. There are several ways that one can make the camera capture images in a very artistic way, again, absent enhancement and worry no more. This fowl had two babes following her as it showed up for the second time today. The first time I saw her, I was taking a shots of a Kingfisher and this hen just walked right in front of my car. I had to make a choice over the Kingfisher and the White-Breasted Waterhen which I never have taken a photograph this close.

Ali Bernie Buga-y has been a teacher in arts and music to different international schools in Thailand for nine years until he decided to enjoy the full time lifestyle of being a visual artist. Together with his family, he travels to different national parks in Thailand to experience true encounters in nature and the wildlife. His love for the birds and animals is the driving force that motivates him to photograph and paint them as seen in the wild. The joys of birding can only be shared through visual representations of these lovely feathered creatures carefully studied and observed in their natural habitat. As a graduate of Theology, he perfectly understands that somehow man should find ways to emerge himself to an edenic experience here on earth; and through these physical experiences man may again find spirituality beholding nature. Complicated as it may seem, Bernie finds it refreshing to the mind and soul as nature reveals itself when he observes and study them carefully through photography.
