    To Borneo and Back Again - And Wrote A Book About It

    Hello all, until about 10 years ago, I was quite active in this forum. At the time, I lived in Taiwan and had a greenhouse with ca. 300 Nepenthes on my garage top. In 2007 I attended the Sarawak Nepenthes Summit in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysian Borneo (see also my related posts), which triggered...

    Confession by way of a few macro shots

    Hi everyone, bad news: I've gone astray and flirted with the neighbors' wives. Apart from Nepenthes, I now have a whole stable of sundews as well as two cephalotus. Why? Last week I came home with my newly purchased 105 mm macro lens, all gung-ho to take some real close close-ups of my D...

    Banded Krait behind the house

    Two days ago, I ran into the first Taiwan Banded Krait of my life, just up the road behind our house. Luckily (for me) it was roadkill. But what a sight! I had a tough time getting our four dogs away from the carcass - touching the teeth can still provide a nasty surprise for a short while after...
