Mangrove Runner by Gordorca Mangrove Runner by Gordorca
Taken from a recent boat trip along one of Sabah's extensive mangrove system. Wasn't a particularly eventful trip, but managed to see quite a few new things like river villages, HUGE swimming leeches (7-11 inches!)(According to the locals, they don't feed on human blood strangely), and how crab traps are laid along the river.

Cloned out a few water splashes, messed a wee bit with the curves to bring out a bit more colour to the photo.

11 inch long leeches! 0_0

Remind me not to visit, which is a shame as it looks really nice.

Haha, they creeped us out thoroughly when we saw them at first. Nobody dared to stick their hands out of the boat soon after. :lol:

And yeah, it's a nice place! The leeches shouldn't make it a no-go zone if you take the appropriate precautions and such. :lol:
