Rich Browns and Beiges of the Malaysian Forests

Postby amytsang » Wed Aug 15, 2012 9:54 am

I was amazed at the rich deep browns, lighter browns and beiges of certain butterflies in the Malaysian forests... certainly these various shades of brown are not dull at all! We saw a good number of Malayan Owls flying at fairly low levels.... their big 'eyes' can give you a little fright as they swish by!
