Sungei Buloh Wetlands Reserve

I went to Sungei Buloh last Saturday at about 4pm after work, just a short walk. Here are some of the photos taken during the 1 hour plus trip.
Sungei Buloh Wetlands ReserveAfter a short walk from the car park to the visitor center, just before entry, I stopped there to enjoy these beautiful green and water,

It was so quiet and peaceful around here. For quite sometime, I was looking at the reflections in the water, daydreaming…

…wondering what are the red among the green?

…spotted this white-breasted waterhen (Amaurornis phoenicurus) near the edge of the pond.
Across the main bridge, I choose to turn right in front of the main hide1A. The tracks under the foliage appears to be leading to nowhere, unpretentious. What lies beyond is a totally new experience of another world…
That was a quiet afternoon, the air is cool after a short heavy rain at noon time.

Peace and quiet…I am not the birds watching fans, just appreciate the serenity of nature, and the peacefulness…Different sounds of insects is the great music playing in this open air theatre. I especially enjoyed the symphony of the cicadas in the trees. The birds hide on top of the trees, singing and calling each other, I wish I could know what they are talking, lol. Along the road, I got to see a few of beautiful birds like kingfisher…Well, it is good enough for me, look around, listen and enjoy.

As my interest, I was seeking the spiders, but I only captured this. Where are the spiders ?

Mangroves and Wetlands are considered as one of the 14 biomes listed in the world. I am pleased to be able to visit them at my own country in the comforts of the boardwalk.
monitor lizard at Sungei Buloh
Photos of Monitor lizard and  Another monitor lizar were posted last year. This is the main character of my trip to Sungei Buloh, the Malayan water monitor lizard (Varanus salvator). I saw it again when I walkout from the main entrance. More photos including some close up shot of monitor lizard will be posted on this weekend.

Thank you for stopping by here. I wish I could have my time for a full day to visit this beautiful Sungei Buloh Wetlands Reserve next time.
