Tales of Borneo: On the river

So we explored the jungle via boat for the next three days, going out on the river four times a day: at sunrise; late morning; late evening and sunset. In-between each expedition we had a couple of hours to rest, eat, and enjoy the jungle atmosphere.

If it hadn't been for our guides, I don't think we would have spotted much. It was incredibly difficult at first to try and identify silhouettes in the tree-line from up to 200 meters away. Here are some of the wildlife we came across.

From top to bottom: a long tailed macaque poses on a branch, crested serpent eagle overhead; tern on a fishing perch.
