Birding and Flood


Can’t go back to my home town (Temerloh) because of flood. Nothing to do, so took out my camera for quick birding in my backyard.
. Edit:  after searching the net, I found the flower name:  Zigzag plant, local name ‘Pokok Lipan’  scientific name: Euphorbia tithymaloides. Source: Wikipedia

I have been observing this ‘Kedidi Kepala Kelabu’ aka Grey Wagtail (Motacilla cinerea)  playing around the monsoon drain  for some time. Only today that have a chance to photograph it
