Wild mushroom - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

During rainy season, we often see mushrooms sprouting in the garden outside our house. We've seen people plucking them for consumption. How can you tell if it's edible or not? Any idea?

Ladybird on daisy flower -- Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

How was Christmas for you all? We had a good day with the family, eating good food, laughing and enjoying each other's company. Not forgetting getting some nature shots early morning before all the cooking in the kitchen!

Ladybirds or ladybugs are one of our favorite insects. Very pretty and dainty. Enjoy these shots we took of a ladybird we found in our garden. 





Preparing for take-off

Leaf bug - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

One of latest (and coolest) nature discoveries recently was this leaf bug we found in our garden. We walked past it thinking was a leaf and on closer inspection found that it was actually a leaf bug! We've seen it before in the insect/butterfly farm in Cameron Highlands but never before in our garden.

Here are some macro shots that we took of the leaf bug. Hope you enjoy!












Does my bum look big in this?






This little red bug was on the same plant and somehow it "stood" on top of the leaf bug and let us photography it.
