4 common sandpipers running on the beach

Common sandpipers on the beach in Tanjung Piai National Park – the Southernmost Point in Continental Asia (near Johor Bahru, Malaysia and Singapore).

The Birds look like they are the “common sandpiper” to me but please comment if you have an accurate identification.

This photo still isn’t any good but I was amazed what happened when I just clicked adjust color and then auto levels in Apple’s Preview application.

Possum photo unadjusted (essentially all black)

So essentially you can see nothing. But just that one click resulted in this:

blurry photo of a possum

It is still a bad photo but you can see much more. This is a photo of a possum in my backyard at night.

photo of a large bird

If you know what bird this is, please leave a comment with the name. My guess is it is a fish eating bird based on the size and beak.

photo of a green and yellow grasshopper

I took this photo on the Campuhan Ridge trail in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia. The hike was quite nice short (about 1 km, 2 km round trip) walk. The goes starts with some vistas of rice fields and nature. Then the trail goes into a village setting with quite a few artists galleries for the tourists. At the end of the trail there is a very nice restaurant with great views.
