    A visit to a limestone hill.



    the morning mist from the previous night on the spider webs and bamboo orchids (Arundina graminifolia) were not to be missed.





    A fig tree that we came across with ripen fruits

    on our way we passed by some durian trees that must have been dispersed by animal (squirrels ?) or human. It's fruiting season now and there are plenty of edible fruits. Some people don't like the smell of durian but it's very high in carbohydrate and protein and goes nice with our packed lunch !!

    my friend picking the good ones


    not the best yellowish variety but quite creamy and good flavor.


    On our way out of the forest we came across a very rare and highly endangered tarsier. Quite surprise for us as most of the time they are only active foraging for insects in the night.

    we managed to take few photos and soon he disappeared into the deep part of the forest.

    see the bonus in its mouth ( they said early bird catches worms, how true !)


    Thanks for looking

    How lucky you are, Robert, to have come across the tarsier during daylight hours!!!! Great shots of the plants but that picture of the tarsier is priceless!

    Thanks for the comments. Many unique orchids grow in limestone hills. we will go back again using different direction instead of the previous, if we have the time.
