Insects in Malaysia

As with most of Southeast Asia, Malaysia abounds in a rich insect life as well as many varieties of spider. It's actually fun and quite challenging trying to take photographs of these tiny bugs, but then everyone should have a hobby.

There are several places that I usually go to try to take insect and spider photos, most commonly the Orchid Gardens and the Hibiscus Gardens in Kuala Lumpur. Then there is the Butterfly Park and the Lake Gardens. And one of my favourite places and somewhere that takes me out of the city and into the jungle is Taman Rimba Ampang.

These are some of my photos, admittedly not all that good, but I try and I have a lot of fun doing so. But please don't ask me to name them all.

I find insects repulsive.. But your pictures all look nice :)

Haha.... I'm not so keen on insects myself. But I do like dragonflies....
