Goose overboard! ⭐️ This is not a beautifully captured picture of a bird or animal but it is a funny one (to me at least!) The goose in the front seems to be saying “C’mon buddy, quick messing around!” 😂
Great Curassow • This turkey-like bird can be found roaming the forest floors from Mexico to South America. Over my trip I only saw three on these birds, although usually you hear them first as they crunch through the leaf litter on the ground. This is where they spend most their life eating fallen fruits however, they do nest and roost overnight in trees. Pairs mate for life and I did see this males mate though she looked less flashy.
A common lizard that live in the reserves. This is a rather small one, if their sizes are too small they often get run over by cars when crossing on the main road as people find it hard to notice only to know when it is too close.
Previously these lizards were quite popular among Chinese as remedies in medicine wine. I'm not entirely sure how were it treated before they put it inside the jar or was it just wash clean and put it in raw. They were then soaked in the jar with homemade herbal wine for years and then drink either a sip or shot to maintain god health. They even apply on skin to prevent or to cure skin problems. My grandma used to have one huge jar of it but it was drained to waste after she passed away. Such a huge waste! That jar was over 50 years!
The medical value were high to herbal medicine practitioners and if with the proper mix of herbs it can really help boost our entire immune system.
Nowadays some still catches them for such use while other locals are just after the meat. They say it tastes like chicken. #olympusphotography#olympusmalaysia#olympusomdem10markiii #olympus75300ii #miri#microfourthirdsphotography#mirrorlesscamera#microfourthirds#em10markiii#olympusomd#birdwatching#photography
Two things about this image make me happy. The first is obvious. The beautiful Cedar Waxwing 😍 The second is the tiny buds on the branches! Spring is near... even though there’s ice on those buds 😅🌿❄️

This male Greater Yellownape (chrysophlegma Flavinucha) is a regular visitor to a waterhole in Kaeng Krachan district. The female has a reddish throat, whereas the male’s is yellow. Woodpeckers are a birding family I deeply enjoy seeing, so I was very pleased with prolonged and excellent views of this great bird. Do you have a favorite woodpecker?
