To leaf through Cerok Tokun

I asked one puff-throated Babbler if it was alone this morning. It  twittered back in a short, followed by a long, and completed in a medium note; this was how an old man talked to a bird normally.

Then I heard twittering every where, as how we used to experience in the Internet.


The "butters" that flew, though did not have a twitter account, always made themselves clear in the eyes of a beholder like me, before merging into the lush green.



When a "dragon" was followed, it was fun to know I was not the only paparazzi around, and I may be famous because of the photographs taken, and shall be followed too.


This repeats every week when I leaf through Cerok Tokun.

I didn't realize the web was so wide-spread on Cerok Tokun. Your photos are so wonderful that I can understand why you are being stalked as you capture these beauties.

I enjoyed your walk with the birds, butterflies and the dragonflies. If they can twitter I am sure they can text too, they are plugged in like my son. Beautiful photos, have a great day!

You don't need a twitter account for that butterfly, dragon, and bird to follow you naturally..

Beautiful photos, Rainfield!

That butterfly and the fern reminds me of many wonders of Nature around us !

betchai said...

lovely depth of field used in each of the pictures, highlighting the life of each subject, indeed, twittering should be everywhere for them, they are such beautiful creatures, and inspiring to see.

Gorgeous! Especially the yellow and black "butter". Such a perfect pose and the scrolly plant is so interesting!

Yeah, the flutter-butter is my favorite also. Nice layout and

I will want to be an orang utan if you can guarantee that I am the king. What I saw was everyone assemble and wait for the king to come, he slowly eats. when he finishes, he grunts, then the older males join in, the females eat last. Yuks!!!!!

Male chauvinist Orang utan.

Quite shallow depth of field on pic no.1. How far were you from the bird?

Malay-Kadazan girl said...

Cantik gambar! One of my favourites in your photo collections.

Deanna said...

The "butter" took my breath away.

RNSANE said...

You bring out all the critters, rainfield...they just love you and what amazing shots you get.

RNSANE said...

We certainly would have an enormous butterfly population if leaves could transform themselves into butterflies as they disengage from trees and go fluttering to the earth!!!

Salitype said...

just lovely, the colors are so sharp !

Ginnymo said...

Great photos! Beautiful little bird tweeting his way through the forest. The colors on that Butterfly are so pretty and that bug following the Dragon is so cool. And you follow them both. I wonder how many eyes are following us each and every moment? Ha!
