ベニタイランチョウ - Vermilion Flycatcher


諦めかけていたその時、すーっと飛んで来たベニタイランチョウ。この鳥をずーっと撮りたいと思っていました。前回、2回とも見つけられませんでしたが、ようやく3度目の正直でいた! – I almost gave up, but suddenly out flew this Vermilion Flycatcher. I have been longing to take pictures of this bird for a long time.  I to do so twice in the past but couldn’t find it.  Today, I finally found it, a male and a female.

ただ、カメラの調整の手違いで、シャッターが思うように押せず、この一枚だけ。一枚だけでもいいんですが、有刺鉄線の上に止ってる姿はどうもいただけません。 自然の中という雰囲気しませんよね。- Unfortunately, my camera wasn’t reacting fast enough. Earlier I had changed some menu options to reduce noise, but that slowed my camera down too much, so the result from today was this shot only.  That’s all right as long as I have a one good shot, but it’s sitting on barbed wire.  I want a shot with a much more natural looking background.   

こちらは、メスのベニタイランチョウです。 – This is a female Vermilion Flycatcher.

木から木へと飛び移る彼らを追いかけて30分。結局枝の上の彼らは暗すぎてボケまくりでした。来週、また挑戦します。それまで、そこにいてね! – I chased them for about half an hour from one tree to the other but I couldn’t capture them well because it was too dark in the tree. Well, that means that I have to go there again next week. So, please be there till then!

      はい、小さい鳥ですが、信じられないほど鮮やかな赤い鳥です。虫を見つけると猛スピードで飛んで行き、空中でカプリと食べるんですよ。だから英語名は “fly – ハエ””catcher – 捕る”という名前がついてます。
