    Great shots, Zainal. The merbah just loves to come for its bath when my sprinkler is on, but it is also a pest destroying the orchid buds before they open. I hang CDs ( a friend's recommendation) in the orchid house to chase them away but it doesn't work. They have a preference for red coloured buds like the renantheras - must resemble some fruits that they like.
