Decided on a weekend trip to some nice birding spots in Malaysia. Flew in on Friday evening. Stayed with a relative and by Saturday 6am, we were on a our way to morning bird photography. It was action packed from then on.

Thanks for the compliment. I used to hate Biology in school but now that I am older, I am beginning to appreciate taxonomy and its significance especially with naming and identification. This is true for plants and animals alike. Nature photography kinda complements this new found interest.

I used to be in OSSEA back in the 2000s. You might see me represented in the committees back then.

Cheers.
