A Colourful Damselfly

Recently visited a pond and found a good number of these damselflies there.



The Ceriagrion cerinorubellum... a rather colourful damselfly indeed!

Quite striking, actually.

Red Skies At Night.....

Ooohh... the red skies!

Perhaps it will be another hot day tomorrow...

Do you reckon?

Fishing Boats

Fishing boats anchored around a wooden jetty or stranded on the beach by the low tide is a common sight here in Langkawi.  Yet, not many appreciate these "quaint" sights and take these scenes for granted.

It is a fact that we are slowly losing a lot of places like these due to development.  More buildings, more land being reclaimed, loss of our mangrove forests, dwindling breeding grounds for fish and these small wooden fishing boats losing their ground as they are slowly driven out by modernisation, development and the concrete jungle taking its place.
