- Anh chàng nhiếp ãnh za "tài tữ" người Thái Philphat Suwanmon, fãi mất 2 năm mới thu
dược hình con chim "ráy cá" săn mồi.
- Thời thơ ấu ỡ quê nhà, tôi thường vát kần di câu ká ỡ kái hoái vây quanh làng, thĩnh thoãng thấy một chú chim "ráy ká" -kánh xanh, bụng vàng- dến săn mồi. Tôi thường ngồi yên dễ xem nó săn ká. Thường thường sau 5,7 fút, từ một nhánh kây trên bờ kách mặt nước dộ 5 mét, con chim ráy ká fóng xuống mặt nước, zùng kặp mõ nhõ, kẹp con ká và bay lên.. Trông rất dẹp mắt.

An amateur photographer has captured stunningly beautiful images of one of nature's finest fishermen at work.
Phiphat Suwanmon, an amateur Thai photographer, spent two years photographing the blue-eared kingfisher in an attempt to document its extraordinary feeding habits.
His striking photographs show a family of kingfishers diving into water to hunt.
The 33-year-old roped in his family to help him create a hide in the birds’ habitat in Thailand's southern province, Satun.
After studying the animals' natural mating, feeding and living cycle the family built a studio within the wilderness and created a new feeding pond for the birds to fish in.
The photographer then encouraged the birds to continue their natural hunting while he shot exceptional pictures.
He said: ‘It takes them about one second to catch a fish.
'They move so quickly that I had to try a variety of different methods to get the best shot.
‘But the pictures are definitely worth the hard work.’
Mr Suwanmon’s work has created a storm among wildlife photographers as admirers express their amazement of the high-quality work.
He is now hoping to use his gallery as a platform to propel Thailand to the forefront of natural world photography.
He said: ‘A lot of people said this is the first time they'd seen pictures of this quality and expected that they'd really been taken by a non-Thai photographer.
‘Hopefully this is only the start of the development of taking quality pictures, and I plan to take further series in the years ahead.’
