[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This magnificent specimen lives in the jungle just an hour from Kuching city, in Sarawak state in East Malaysia. It was one of the biggest thrills in seeing animals so close as this.

Matang Wildlife Center is located in Kubah National Park, Sarawak’s main center for wildlife rehabilitation. This center is responsible for rescuing and helping a wide variety of animals back into the wild. Ranging from orang utan and sun bears to hornbills and sea eagles all of which can be view in natural enclosures in a rainforest setting.

The rescued animals being rehabilitated here include orang utan, sun bears, bear cats, civet cats, sambar deer, barking deer, porcupines and crocodiles, all of which can be viewed in spacious natural enclosures. A large aviary houses a variety of hornbills, as well as brahminy kites and sea eagles.

Hello Murray,

You took the both eyes, very important for a beautiful picture.
Splendid position too.
Excellent composition, splendid colors.
Very well captured.

Best regards,

Hallo Murray
I am a bit scarce around the site at the moment, please pardon my short note. What a striking buck is the Rusa Deer and how well did you capture some of its prominent details, especially the ears, the horns, the different colour at the lower legs and the short hairy tail. I like the direct eye contact very much. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
