Thought of the day

I thank whatever gods may be / For my unconquerable soul. / I am the master of my fate / I am the captain of my soul. ~William Ernest Henley, Invictus

Government's promises are like the Ringgit, they depreciate with time.

My Photo of the Week

focus: 200mm, ss:1/500s, f/5.6, ISO:200

While snapping outside of the house one morning, this little yellow hummingbird flew down from nowhere and settled on one of the flower pots. I crept closer to get a better shot with my kit lens yet this brave little fellow ignored my advancement, feeding upon the nectar from the ixoras with its bifurcated tongue; stopping occasionally to check on me due to curiosity. Suddenly, it flipped its wing and i thought I had lost it without getting a decent shot.

To my relief, it settled on a nearby tree. And instantaneously, I dashed into the house and switched to my tele lens. I approached the bird again, more daringly this time as I knew it was not shy. It allowed me to braced myself, zoomed in and snapped a few rounds before it let off a chirp and flew off.
