Raptors of Langkawi [11]

Post by mallardg500 on Thu Aug 01, 2013 6:25 am

Sharing more of my recent shots from Malaysia - this time, our favourite birds: raptors. 
Even though I did not get as many species as I'd like to and despite the weather not being on my side, I really had a blast in Langkawi. Special thanks to Sofian Zack for taking me around this small island and bro Desmond Soe for the bonus shots.
Hope you like them.
