Sandstone mountain of northern Peninsular Malaysia - part 2

Paphiopedilum barbatum

Jewel orchid



This is my first time to meet this lovely long snake, Dryocalamus subannulatus. It was heavy downpour in the evening, in the jungle of northern Peninsular Malaysia. We're taking shelter in a hut to wait for the rain to stop & then I spotted it in the bushes not far away from me.
