Saw this queen ant with torn off wings at home. I took a portrait shot and let her free to continue her mission in the garden.
On a closer look, she has 3 eyes on the fore head and little arms or ‘helping hands’ at her mouth.
There are always beauty and interesting subjects around us. We see what we like to focus on.
The most common word exclaimed by first time visitors to Pulau Redang (Redang Island) has to be “paradise”.
How clear is the water? See it for yourself.
You may not believe that I saw these coral fish in waist deep water.
Still don’t believe, let’s see it from the bird eye view.
I was lucky to spot some beautiful flora during the short visit to the low altitude mountains (2,000m~3,000m) and cities.
Flowers always bloom wilder in cooler climate.
Personally, I think Pasar Burung is more interesting than many of the tourist attractions in Jogja such as palace or fort.
One gets to meet the locals and discover their passion for birds as a pet.
It was an eye opener when we visited the bird market at Yogyakarta.
The variety of birds and pets were amazing.
Bring friends to nearby town this weekend, and took a few shots on flora and fauna.
I discovered this master of disguise – the stick insect on Gunung Brinchang (6,666 feet above sea level).
The little snail was hiding behind a leaf at the organic farm @ Brinchang, Cameron Highland.
During Christmas 2011, I posted my first exploration of the Secret Garden. I learned my lesson and brought a macro lens to do some close-up shots.
