An unidentified sunbird perched high on a branch. Heat from the hot morning - wondering if it was one of the factors that caused the image to be blurry. Must admit that I am still a beginner when it comes to taking photographs of birds. Birdwatching in the gardens of the hotel was an added bonus. It was already bright by 6am in Bangsaen, Chonburi, Thailand and I had to stop birdwatching by 7.30am. We had to be at the hotel lobby before 9am. Wedding tea ceremony that Sat morning to attend.
The bride's house was nearby the coast and wetlands. Saw a cormorant perched outside her house (shucks - didn't bring my camera along for the morning tea ceremony). A black-winged stilt flew overhead as we had our al-fresco lunch outside her house that Saturday. Pad thai fried with duck eggs and seafood was served straight out of the huge wok in front of the bride's house. The best pad thai noodles I have ever tasted. Wonderful memories indeed from that weekend trip to Thailand, attending my second cousin's wedding. The warmth and hospitality of the Thais especially bride's family were legendary.
