But one thing I really want to is to salvage some of my Flickr pictures from the 200 photos limit. So I guess I'll start with the older pictures from Taiwan this summer (2008). Here are Part 2 and Part 3.
I took the first three photos on August 27, 2008 in Fuyang Eco Park in Taipei City. It is near the edge of the city where forests and wildlife are too not heavily disturbed.
Formosan Gossamerwing (Euphaea formosa) - endemic but common in Taiwan
On the 28th, I went to Guandu Nature Park, an area with mudflats, marsh, woodland, and mangrove forests. It is qualified as an Important Bird Area (IBA) recognized by BirdLife International, and provides important wintering ground for the endagered Black-faced Spoonbill (Platalea minor). I remember that day being very hot with little sightings. But I did saw this mudskipper. They are quite common in this park but very critical because their nature habitats are being destroyed by aquaculture development in Asia.
