Another green plant in the forest - most possibly a fern plant. If you observe this picture carefully, you can see lots of tiny little dots on the right side of the plant.

Look like a centipede getting ready to attack its prey.

A fern leaf. I think those droplets of water are morning dew

A red coloured wild berry. I noticed this little cutie when I was 'scanning' the forest floor for some nature goodies.

Title: Bend it like me

A green leaf growing on the trunk of a tree.

I went to FRIM hoping to witness some rare plants and also animals in action. Unfortunately, there is none! Huge trees were lining both side of the road. Some small plants here and there. I guess the influx of vehicles and recent development in the forest is taking toll on these floras.

Overall, FRIM is a nice place for morning jog...nothing else. More pictures in Part 3!

  13. Went to FRIM many years ago. Quiet place amidst the urban jungle. Must have changed a lot since. Yes, thought-provoking pictures as usual- an eye for the unusual and unique.

  15. @Roger,

    Thank you again! Mostly close-up shots. I really wanna invest on better lenses for some macro and long-view shots.

    FRIM is like an urban forest to me. Not that impressive. I don't understand why the management allowed motorist (both bikes and cars) into the forest.

    Have you been to Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve before? It is located somewhere in Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur. This is the real 'virgin' jungle. Many ways better than FRIM.

    Cheers!
