    The rainy season is still not yet coming. The sky of southern Sarawak is still covered by a thick layer of haze. It's very sad that I can't see the blue sky of Borneo for so many months.

    There is no uncommon fish fauna (Rasbora sarawakensis, Puntius banksi, Puntius kuchingensis, Puntius everetti) in this river, so I didn't collect any specimen here. This trip is another photography trip to practice to use my new macro lens, Tamron AF 90mm.

    even if we can find it, highly lightly we can't pluck it
    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.
