Flying Over Busan

Flying Over Busan

I was waiting for the blue hour to kick in so I can take a photo of Busan Cityscapes from Geumjeongsan when I saw these two birds flying where one bird seems to chase the other.The birds were very quick to fly and since there were only little available light, it was difficult to take this picture.


Cats: The internet is full of them. So, in a vain attempt to pull more traffic to Monkeyboy Goes, I’ve finally stooped to this….


Through the course of my monkeying around in Asia, I have come across many a stray cat and dog. Whenever I see one I can’t help but whip the camera out.


For those with a keen eye, you’ll notice that some of the furry creatures captured here are far from stray…. Whatever, I needed a title.

Birdie Buddy on Seoul Metro

The other day on the Seoul Metro we had an unusual passenger join us!  At first I thought it was a toy, but then I realized the girl quietly standing by the doorway had a pretty little bird with her!  I think he is a Peachface Lovebird? So cute!

She had him on the cutest little backpack-looking leash, but here is the best part…..

The Birds

Ulsan has a strange formation of birds or rather “a murder of crows” Thousands of these birds flock to the Taehwa River area most evenings and fill the sky. It is something to see as it is almost ominous to see so many black crows

in the sky. I remember seeing a bunch when I lived in the area before but the other night was insane. The cold weather seems to bring more out and I suspect that it has something to do with a natural feeding ground and the topography of there area as to why they choose to flock to this particular area.

Homemade Bird Feeders

It’s getting colder and I’m less inclined to spend the days outdoors, and the birds are feeling it too. Those who haven’t made the transition to warmer climates are searching out food. After coming across a dead finch on a walk yesterday, I decided to help fatten them up.

Mungmi and I went for a hike in search for pinecones. They were not as big as I hoped, but worked all the same.

If you live in Korea and have never been to Suncheon Bay in Jeollado then you are missing out on one of the best scenic views this country has to offer. These protected wetlands are a must visit for any bird lover or nature photographer.

My article about this amazing place is out this month. Pick up a copy of the November 2010 issue of Seoul Magazine or download the free ebook version. Or you can just read about it here. And special thanks to Suncheon resident and photographer extraordinaire Simon Bond. His great tips and local know-how were essential in putting this article together. Thanks buddy!
