Dragonfly from Bukit Gasing

Frontal View

Close-up side view

Gasing Hill or better known as Bukit Gasing is situated in Petaling Jaya nearby PJ old town in Selangor, Malaysia. It is a place known for it's nice forestry heritage and alot of people from all walks of life can be seen strolling or taking a hike at this hill especially during the weekends.

I went for an outing last Sunday and was delighted to capture some of the insects and one of them is the red colored dragonfly.. This will definitely not goin to be my last trip as there's more to explore.. and I'd say that the Gasing Hill is definitely a place worth visiting..

Part of the trail at Taman Pendidikan Bukit Gasing has collapsed in a big way due to a landslide sometime last week. The trail has been cut off. A bungalow's compound is under threat. Although unrelated to the proposed development on the KL side, this is natural evidence of how fragile Bukit Gasing is. Please join us to SAVE BUKIT GASING.
