Raptor Watch over...

I have completed my stint at the lighthouse - two weeks overlooking the Straits of Malacca. (The watch goes on, but I do have to work. Like, um, write. You know, books.)

So it's back to Book Two of the Stormlord sequence, now tentatively titled "Stormlord Rising", but who knows...

Huge stuff is also going on in my private life too, which will impact what I do in the next few months. More of that when I have a better idea of what is happening.

In the meantime: Here's a game of spot the monkey. Or maybe "Ignorance about the dangers of electricity is bliss".
This fellow above, the alpha male of the troops of Dusky Langurs, was actually hiding in wait for another young male that was trailing the troop... here's the unsuspecting teenager below.And here are a couple (same species) in an untouched photo which somehow seems to make this generally gentle vegetarian appear distinctly evil...

Love the monkeys Glenda. I often see birds on the electricity poles and wires and wonder how they get away with it.

These lotongs always come to my house in kampong to eat the fruits (asam, rambutan etc) because apparently most of other lands have been planted with palm tress or coconut trees. Of of the lotong tried to pee on me from the tree!

But aren't they fun to watch!
