Sometimes I just can't help but feel amazed by mother nature. Every year, tourist from all over the world flock to Malaysia to enjoy nature. Tourists that tour Penang would sometimes take the opportunity to come to Nibong Tebal just to see colonies of fire flies along the banks of Kerian River (Kuala Selangor if you're in the state of Selangor). Of course those fire flies are really small and not really bright.
So yesterday night while I was doing house chores, a brightly lit little bug flew by. This species is rather different from the ones by the river. It's a lone ranger or sometimes (if lucky) you'll get to see a pair or more flying around. But never in hordes.
I guess this fella got a little confused, or maybe lost it's sense of direction and flew head on against the wall. So I swept it up and place it in a dust pan for a little impromptu photo shoot. Those dust and dirt on it's body actually came from the dust pan. And just to take a shot at it's underbelly, we some how caught this 'FREEZE! Hands In the Air' pose.
Using night mode and setting the exposure time to 8 seconds, when clicked moved the camera around in a circular motion to create those multiple dots. So it may look like there's plenty of buys when in actual fact, its only one little fella flashing its butt at us!
Note: I left the bug back in the garden after the photo shoot. So whether it flew away or got eaten by the household lizard, it is unknown...
