Langkawi, and some if its smaller islands, has a legendary reputation, with many places where myth and natural beauty seem to coincide. Many of its legends are all the more real, simply because its people are convinced of their authenticity. Langkawi simply means reddish brown eagle. Helang in malay it means eagle...shortened is "lang". Kawi means the colour reddish brown. That is why Langkawi's idol is an eagle coloured reddish brown!!


Langkawi offers some truly unforgettable sights and experiences when you visit the Kilim Nature Park; an escape to another world. Spread over an area of 100 sq km, the Kilim Nature Park features a beautiful mix of well-protected green mangrove forests, isolated white beaches and blue lagoons. As you cruise down the calm, winding river, you will observe the wonders of the park's marine ecosystem, its flora and fauna and the natural inhabitants such as the over-hanging 'Bogak Trees', Brown Eagles, Tree Crabs, Monitor Lizards and Macaques.


It was incredible experience to watch so many eagles fly above our heads and I took many shots of them. I was especially very happy to capture shot like this, when those two eagles started to fight while flying. Unfortunately 200mm is not a widelife lens and this is rather heavy crop, I'm still happy it is part of my Malaysian portfolio.
