Horukuru,
I thought as a tourist guide you would not have the time to take these wonderful birds and animals photos! Instead you go to find these creatures when you are NOT leading the tourists!

Great shots that can make a lot of birders jealous! I am!

BTW I just learned the Kadazan word for dragonfly today - TOMPOKIZU! In Tenghilan the Dusun word is KUYUKUYU. Do you know what it's called in other dialects?
