    Wild Adder

    I remember when I first started looking for these interesting reptiles years ago, I was expecting something fairy large and eye-catching. Of course I was wrong and failed miserably. Then I volunteered for Natural England. Through working with experts and surveying, I learnt a fair bit about...

    Wild Rainforest macro II

    One of the few occasions where I was able to identify a rainforest invert. I believe this is Chitaura brachyptera, a small but colourful grasshopper. Photographed in Sulawesi.

    Wild Man of the Forest (+2)

    Here's a wider view showing a Bornean Orang-utan swinging carefree in its natural habitat. It's actually much harder to capture a wide-angle shot like this than a traditional telephoto image, both technically and conceptually.

    Wild Proboscis Monkey

    She's not low down - this was photographed from the top deck of our boathouse, southern Borneo. No, we can hold our drinks reasonably well. :beer:

    Wild Little Blue Eyes

    One of my earlier projects which lasted about 6 weeks. This den was in the woods behind my house. So it was really convenient. I could and did spend a lot of time with them, Sometimes I sat with my then six year old daughter watching them in the evenings. Fond memories. Though getting her to sit...

    Wild Rainforest macro

    Often, I come across many species of invertebrates that I'm unable to identify, like this caterpillar for example. Rainforest carries so many secrets.

    Wild Man of the Forest (+2)

    Another shot from this remote part of Indonesian Borneo. It's not often that you see these aboreal primates near water but I do see them forage for Nipa Palm hearts when the fruit trees are not in season.

    Many congratulations, Alastair. For a honeymoon, I'd recommend visiting the Malaysian state of Sabah (northeast of the island). Great established infrastructure and lots to do and see. Most can be done in sandals and shorts, including platforms designed for viewing rehabilitated Orang-utans...
