Rajah Brooke Birdwing Butterfly Vs Plain Pygmy Squirrel

16th June 2009



As I walked back from the Kingfisher spot yesterday heading to my car, I couldn't believe I saw clean perched and eye level of this biggest butterfly in the world ! Hahaha after many years seeing this beauty in flight resembled like black colour bird, now I got the shot using my scope :p (Almost impossible to digiscoped when it was flying around)




And one of the smallest squirrel in the world is this resident species in Borneo, Plain Pygmy Squirrel measuring from head to taill, 13 inch. Feeds on algae that grow on a tree trunk and one of the fastest squirrel i have seen moved and jumped from tree to tree.




As usual, birding a bit slow nowadays with less activity in the forest. Only 2 species of birds was digiscoped recently.


Large Woodshrike



Blue-crowned Hanging Parrot


I will be off to Sandakan this Friday attending workshop and giving talk about birding and digiscoping in Sabah during the Nikon Workshop at Rainforest Discovery Centre, Sepilok.

Happy birding and hope to see you there :)

I love those Pygmy Squirrels, a beautiful little animal. They move like little toys. I've seen them the last 2 times I was in Borneo.
