While a monkey is not biologically prone to attack- Please don't provoke & feed them. There is a possibilities that your actions gone awry and will lead to stitches or a potentially fatal case.
I think this is the first hornbill I have ever captured using my Sigma 70-300mm lense. The bird look very impressive and the shot is technicaly need further trainning. Sigh!
And I saw quite a few Kingfishers in Berjaya Langkawi Resort not long after I took this one (at Ulu Melaka). The birds are really beautiful ! (Again, I did not get any good shot and maybe I had better luck next time)
There were many small fruits on each tree in the rainforest and they all fell off for some reason.Like this one-these fruit fell and hit on my head and I got a big bump for two days...Ooooouch !!!
