Huntsman Spider

This species is suppose to be common at least very common in some of our National Park. This one most likely a female based on the size was observed on the tree. To be honest i was little freak out with spider still nature beauty give me the encouragement to get at least 5 shot of this spider. After that I'm off.

A name give sound more like someones pet. This Brown Bob I'm not sure if this is uncommon in this area or not but this is the first time i saw this species here. In other place we can see them moving from leave to leave on the lower shrub as how this one was spotted in the first place. As it nae suggest this Bob is all brown.

Technically a fish with amphibian ability. This one the Gold Spotted Mudskipper. Today there was so many of them around near the shoreline during high tide. It was a great joy to look at them keeping up with the wave that hit the coast line.

Dragonfly : orthetrum chrysis

ID CORRECTION : orthetrum chrysisThanks ro Marcus Ng from Singapore Dragonfly group

Another species during the holiday outing. This time this red rocket was in a small group. The orthetrum chrysis. Taking the photo is not easy as I was standing on a bridge while trying to take some shot down below where is rather wet.

Dragonfly : Neurothemis fluctuans

Nature flying rocket. Probably one of those we really forget about when we go out. The rocket which can dash in fast speed, red in colour or many other colour probably one of the simplest and oldest creature for me to see. This one Neurothemis fluctuans commonly see around pond and water body area. This was photograph near to a small pond.

Curlew Sandpiper & Lesser Sand Plover

It is easy to take more then one wader together but in mid day at 12 noon is it not easy to get one without heat wave and all other factor that can make your photo bad. However seeing this two together kind of remind me of some survey back then where I conducted for wader on both shore and on boat. :)

Common Iora

As name suggest it is common. This species can be seen from submontane area at time all the way to the coast. This time around this was observed in a park. However what make this shot interested was this is taken through a 350D. On the same time i get to test out a 70-300 sigma (Macro) lens.

Painted Stork

Painted Stork, a species eve is i see it in some location i have no idea if it is while or not. However, a few month ago we probably have the first record on one of the state up north in peninsula malaysia. Also probably the first wild population on migration in years though this fact i'm just guessing. Nevertheless seing this one coming to this locality was the 4th time and I was surprise to see them around. Only one subadult. Hey what do you know maybe will get more common.

Whiskered Tern

Whiskered Tern is probably one of the commonest tern we have in both coastal and fresh water area. Today visit was suppose to be for raptor however the haze was so bad till most of my view were not visible. So I abandoned boat and head off to check for other stuff. Soon i come across all 3 species of tern in a small area so i decided to pull my car over and have some look. Soon some photographic opportunity turn out and off I go with my camera. The bird was perching not really near but in a nice distance for me to get this first shot.

Crested Serpent Eagle

A species specializing in reptile population control. This species have been observed hunting venomous species such as the Monoclad Cobra, Sumantra Spitting cobra, Common Cobra and many other species as well. Nevertheless like our local saying there will be mistake. Serpent Eagle have know to die due to snake bite especially those recorded from India.

Black Veined Tiger

Dark Viened Tiger or is I'm not mistake it is also called White Tiger. Toger Butterfly is probably to me one of the most beautiful butterfly i have seen. I'm sure there is people would suggest the other such as Jezebel and so on but to me this is one of the most beautiful and entertaining to photograph. This shot is taken in one of my locality. My search again for the Banded Swallowtail was not fruitful though I have got some good shot from this area before.

White-Throated Kingfisher

White-throated Kingfisher the most common Kingfisher in Peninsula Malaysia though not in borneo. This species nest is almost every situation i can find. From man made hole to cavity by the bank. However as common as this species is, the colour and the bird itself is beautiful enough for us to keep looking at them all the time. This year itself we saw a few of this species nest though non of them made it into our observation. 

This photo was digiscope a few days ago a during my butterfly outing.
