A walk in Singapore Jurong Bird Park

It was a Sunday morning, and I decided to visit one of Singapore’s attractions, Jurong Bird Park. I have wanted to do so many months ago but didn’t really had the chance to do so.

And I just so decided to make it happen yesterday.

So I picked up my gears, travelled 1.5hours via public transport and headed towards the park and started snapping away.

Soon, I realised, that “wildlife” photography is not my cup of tea, and of course it’s not as easy as I think it is.

Still, I captured some nice pictures (well, at least to me, they are nice).

Somehow this picture below seems to me more like a sculpture, rather than it was trying to fly off.

It’s quite rare to see waterfall in Singapore, hence I snapped a few pictures and took it as an opportunity to play with my polariser filter and milky water shots. Again, it’s not easy at all.

Again, this picture seem to be sculptures to me. But I like kind of like this picture.

Here, some of the tourists / visitors fed the birds.

It is really funny that I have gone to the bird park and ended up with no picture of “kings of the sky” – eagles, condors, hawk, vultures etc, nor I have captured any bird flying.
