Daily Photo – Spider Builds a Home


Hunting in the early morning light in the Way Kambas National Park of South Sumatra led me to this little guy. I was more or less trying to get a good composition with the plant, water droplets and the background and then this little guy just appeared out of nowhere.

I met her and spent some precious time her over a couple of days. Video […]

Way Kambas, Lampung – Travel Photo


Way Kambas is located about 2.5 hours north of the city of Lampung in Sumatra and the conservation center in the national park is home to around 60+ elephants.

These two calves are 4 and 5 months old respectively and fumbling around under the feet of their mothers as the mahouts were providing check ups for the adult elephants.
