Common Tailorbird This bird is quite a bit higher than me in the tree. The nifty features (red top, green back) and sadly mostly out of view. There were several of these birds in this stand of coral tree but they move quickly.

Glassy Tiger On Billygoat Weed There are a variety of butterflies that look pretty similar. Thankfully I have a book of local butterflies which makes it easier to figure out which of the similar types this is.

The butterfly is feeding on a weed introduced from the new world. The weed contaminates feed (it is poisonous) and spreads real well.

Common Five Ring Dry Season I didn't know this existed with butterflies - the butterflies that emerge in the dry season have a different number of spots than the ones that come out in the wet season (July here). The wet season version would have three rings on the bottom wing instead of two seen here.

Common Five-Ring Dry Season Another species that has similar looking species living in the same place.

Asian Common Toad Oh, saucy! This wasn't a large pond, but I'm sure it's big enough for this pair.

Russet Percher Another species we saw at both the nature reserve and the the butterfly park. Most of the dragonflies you see in BC have entirely transparent wings, some with spots on them. This species is the opposite - opaque wings with transparent spots.

This photo is a composite of two images for depth of field.

Red Flanked Bluetail In Forest These birds are wintering in Hong Kong. Some years see many, some years few. The other photographer there said this has been a poor year - few birds present in Hong Kong. This particular one is reliable - it stays in the same stand of trees every morning.
