I love animals and Malaysia has some incredibly wonderful (and often endangered) ones. Photography is another passion of mine; I often try to marry photography and writing but, when it comes to animals, I confess I am more into the photos than the words, preferring silence and simple awe in their m-m-m-magnificent presence.
Here are a few of the animal photos I've taken in Malaysia. A book of my photography--animal and otherwise--along with some poetry can be read here in its entirety.
|The Orang Utan|
|The Kuala Lumpur butterfly park is amazing...|
|...and so is the bird park!|
|"Moaz" came to visit from the US and loved the |
Silver Leaf Monkeys
of Bukit Melawati...
|And so did big brother Omer|
| Yes, it's a hornbill! |
|...and the heart-shaped face!|
|Silver leaf monkeys are born bright orange, and change|
colour with age.
|An elephant at Kuala Gandah Sanctuary|
Tiger, tiger...sadly, endangered tiger.
"Malamutes" qualify for wild beasties in Malaysia, too (Solo thinks).
