Baiting


After waiting for more that half an hour, no birds came close to my backyard. Nearly 8:00am, hurry time to go to work. So I took this ripe banana and put it near my back door, about 5 feet from my camera, pre-focused to that banana bunch. I hide behind the door with a shutter release cable in my hand.

Sure enough, this Yellow Vented Bulbul takes a bite. Managed to shoot 5 frames before she heard the camera shutter and flew away.

Looking….., nobody around…

Let’s have a look!

Wow! nice and ripe.

Mmm…Sweet?
(why not choose the fresh one?)

This type of bird photography is unethical.
We should not feed a wildlife/birds.
But this bird is so abundant around my house and they used to feed with this type of banana (also around my back yard). This banana is ripe and I don’t think have any disease.
