My sub-par attempt at capturing a Green Pea Fowl, will have to get a lot closer to these very wary birds

Replied by WT admin on topic Picture of the Month - Banteng

This month's winner is Jonathan Feteke's image of a female banteng with calf (Bos javanicus) resting in the early evening light at the Huai Kha Khaeng Wildlife Sanctuary. You can read more of how Jonathan took the photograph by clicking here

"The world population of Banteng is unlikely to be more than 8,000 and is quite possibly fewer than 5,000 animals. No subpopulations of more than 500, and only 6–8 subpopulations of more than 50 animals, are known, with 4–5 on Java and 1–2 in Thailand (S. Hedges pers. comm. 2000; Pudyatmoko 2004).

A once fairly widely distributed species, it is now largely reduced to small isolated populations, most of which are still in decline. In Thailand there are two populations thought to contain over 50 individuals, in Huai Kha Khaeng Wildlife Sanctuary and Kaeng Krachan National Park. Both areas are under active conservation management." [Source IUCN]

Great shot, Jonathan!
Deserves to be picture of the month.

What focal length are you using?

Thank you Bagheera, and high compliments on your camera trapping in MHS, love to see the dholes up there that you put on this morning

@onflipflops For that shot I used a 300mm 2.8 with a 1.5x zoom adapter. Had they been a bit closer I would have loved to take the adapter off for a full F2.8. This lens is a beast to carry in the forest but I have adapted a 5.11 military backpack with a chest strap to hang it off of.

I have a few shots of another smaller calf feeding off mom but the image quality isnt the best, I will add it anyway this weekend along with a younger bull with striking colors still allowed to hang out with the girls (I am sure not for much longer)

Clearly your setup gives great results!
I can imagine that carrying it around is not as pleasant.

The idea to connect it with a chest strap to your backpack is great.
Looking forward to your other images.

Mother and calf having a feed, I was still fairly far away in the stalk so image quality and foliage affected the shot as you see
