I am posting the following three images to help drum up support for this "event". NPSS is part of many of our daily routines and I hope everyone will support her events It will be great fun to see many many beautiful pictures
1 This torresian crow was seen swooping down to the watering hole and grabbing the hapless frog. It then flew over a nearby stump where he proceeded to kill the amphibian by ripping it open. It looked up in the midst of this grisly act to stare menacingly at anyone who dare interrupt him!!This image hopes to capture this attitude amidst the savage beauty that is Nature.
2 This darter was seen preening himself carefully in the warm morning sun.This is a very important activity as it helps to maintain the perfect condition of the feathers and this will help keep them waterproof as the bird swims underwater in his hunting trips.This close-up image hopes to capture the intensity of his concentration in this important action.
3 This whiskered tern was seen hovering over the sewerage pond looking for food. A very interesting action was seen here whereby the bird would fly against the prevailing wind direction and used it to facilitate its hovering over the water surface.This was repeated over and over again.This image hopes to capture the elegant action of this bird dipping his beak in the water and drawing a fine water spray as he lifts off.
Hope you will like these images as much as I enjoyed presenting them to you.

We were watching this Yellow-headed Caracara (Milvago chimachima) for around 20 minutes before we saw some action, we could see that it was studying the Amazon river water intensely, while it completely ignored our presence in a boat quite close by.
Our patience was rewarded when suddenly it dived towards the silty river water – the 1st attempt was not successful and the Caracara returned to its perch empty-handed. However, few minutes later it dived again, and this time successfully leaving with a Piranha, and that was the last we saw of it.
Attaching another 2 photo of an OPH and a row of Yellow-spotted side-necked turtels (from the Amazon)

Here is my turn. Putting up 3 photos which were taken at Penyabong Beach (Mersing) on the recent LS outing. The beach is still relatively untouched and a great place for LS.

Title: Follow the leader.
When we are on the way from Benzilan to Deqin (crossing the border from Yunnan to Sichuan), we stop to visit a Tibetan farmer. The scene behind his house takes me by surprise. I want to be a cowboy!

Have been followup with this Ornamental Tree-Trunk Spider for more than a month (since 11 Sep 09) on the same tree. First saw two of the big female spiders and after a few days later, a few of the male come around. Currently left a big female, many (more than 5) small female on the same tree. Look like the spider with remain in this tree for sometimes .
I read a fact of this spider on the web mentioned:
"This species of spiders lives in webs built on tree trunks. If you think she is colourful, you should see the underside of her belly – it is red with a black spot in the centre!
This species of spider displays an unusual mating behavior – the male’s genitalia often break off (ouch!) within the female to prevent subsequent males from mating with her. Talk about the possessive male!"

Here are my entries.
Black Naped Tern at their usual breeding ground. Shot this in May after the eggs have hatched.
Saw 3 chicks there, this little chick was hungry and when mum return without any food,
she started to scream at her. Quite a comic sight.
Canon 40D EFS 55-250mm. 1/320 ISO640 f8.0 handheld and no flash.
Asian Glossy Starling at Changi boardwalk, their breeding ground. These Starling really make good parents,
after each feed they would remove the chicks poo. Grab the poo in their beak and dropping them
off away from their nest.
Caono 40D 400mm. 1/320 ISO640f8.0. Tripod and no flash.
