Rajah Brooke's Birdwing butterflies, Ulu Geroh 9thFeb2011

Ulu Geroh has much to offer. This dirt path is not just any dirt path....hundreds of Rajah Brooke's Birdwing butterflies converge here daily from dawn to dusk. The male butterflies leave at about 7pm daily. The female butterflies are never seen on the ground, only on treetops.

The butterflies are tame enough for you to pet. Our guide, Ngah, encouraged Fai and Han to gently carress their wings.

What a lovely sight,

Giant Golden Orb Spider.

Picturesque, don't you think?
