KL Delights Part 2

Consisted of a city bus tour & savouring the delights of the city I'd not yet seen & there were many!

At the start of the trip I thought they'd rolled out the red carpet for me, the police escort were standing guard and then the special detectives pulled up.  I finally guessed this was a little over the top for me, a humble working lady, when the Prime Minister of Malaysia appeared with his entourage because I felt sure they hadn't turned out for me at the same bus stop!!  Ah well just get on the Hop-on Hop-Off bus instead its less conspicuous anyway!!
He's the guy with the flowing skirt on in the middle!
I got off the bus at the KL bird park.  Its the World's largest Free-flight Walk-in Aviary and what a thrill that was.  I walked (and was used as a roosting post on occasions) through the most interesting bird filled gardens I've ever seen. It's home to 3,000 birds both local & foreign absolutely fascinating.  You walk amongst them they come and perch on your shoulder and they will pinch your lunch if you're not careful!! 
3 Birds!!

My lunch mate!
After spending a good 3 hours in the aviary gardens, moved on to the national orchid gardens swiftly followed by the butterfly garden.  It was hot, humid and lovely warm rain and I enjoyed every minute of it.  Back to reality - no more play now just work all next week!!

Check out the brown leaf its the underside of a butterfly!

Bet you said "wonder what it looks like with it's wings open - well its the big guy top left!

One of nature's finest!
