Recently I've been flying on Saturdays, so I have a Sunday-Monday weekend. On Monday morning I went down to the mangrove swamp for a few hours with the the camera. Here's a sampling of what I saw.
A toothy macaque monkey.
The elusive proboscis monkey.
Joy's and the kids' favorite local bird--a king fisher? I worked hard for two hours trying to get a shot of one of these. They're very wary and don't let you get close.
A small skink.
I love these little crabs. They come in bright and varied colors--blue, yellow, red, pink, orange. But they're very tiny and I've only ever seen them in one small spot. This blue one is the largest I've ever seen. It was a little smaller than a US quarter (as in $.25 piece).
This red one was about the size of a very small Lima bean. And it was about eight feet below me in the mud--hence, it's not the clearest picture in the world, but you get the idea.
Hope you enjoyed the tour through the mangrove swamp. Stop by often to see a smattering of ministry, wildlife and "Forney life" pictures from Indonesia.
