Because of this new building construction. This two Indonesian workers have to work even on 2nd Raya Holiday.
I have to take another route in front of the school, and welcome by this yellow carpet of fallen angsana flowers.

and noticed the water bottle was cut and used as latex collection pot. Good recycling..
My objective of birding that day was met by a close encounter with this beautiful Banded Woodpecker (Picus miniaceus)
quickly followed by cloacal contact…
it was all over in less than 8 seconds.

and this Warps (Vespa affinis) was having it breakfast on Straits Rhododendron flowers (Melastoma malabathricum).
