Though I complained about missing many of the wildlife in my Nature Park post, I did manage to capture a few poor photos of some of the wildlife in Kuala Selangor.
Above are creatures living in the mud flats and mangrove forest.
They include mud skippers, blue crab, red crab, king fisher, water monitor lizard and some dead snails.
There were otters too.
This Brackish Lake System was created for birds to roost and feed.
It also acts as a safe nesting area for many birds.
We could see huge birds with their nests on the trees.
Unfortunately I didn't have a suitable camera and my shots of the hawks and migratory birds turned out to be merely specks of white or black in the sky.
Finally I found a hawk that stool really still and managed to snap a photo at a close distance.
This shot came out a lot better than then the woodpecker shot.
The wood pecker hid its head behind branches each time I clicked so I had to settle with this friendly hawk.
Red ants build a nest with leaves.
One of them decided to hitch a ride on my back after I took this shot.
I thought the spider was kind of artistic with its web weaving.
Figs and ferns were abundant.
Why are there holes and teeth marks on the tree trunks?
The berry photos above are before and after shots.
There is one photo which I took before using the mosquito repellent.
As you can see, the mosquito repellent made a lot of difference to the quality of macros.
Can you imagine gazillions of hungry blood suckers attached to your body?
If you decide to visit Kuala Selangor's Nature Park, you know what to bring with you.
Thankfully for us, a pharmacy was just within 300 metres away from the place.
