Deer Cave, Gunung Mulu National Park
|Next is the Deer Cave after my exploration in the Lang Cave which is sitting just next to this cave. Even there are side by side but their cave structure is totally different.|
|The entrance of the Deer Cave is wider, bigger and taller than Lang Cave.|
|It is called Deer Cave is obviously because there were a lot of deer coming in and out this cave. After men exploration into this cave, the deer has switch their habitat to another place.|
|The ceiling is really high and there are lack of artificial light in this cave. Everything is fully depending on the sunlight.|
|This cave is bigger and will takes you about 15 minutes walk around the cave excluding photo shooting time.|
|If you cannot stand with the smell, do bring your mask before entering this cave.|
|With the above, you almost ready to get a good picture like this. If you notice well, this picture is shaky. I do admit I am not good at keeping myself steady.|
|You might need a high speed continuous shot so that you able to get at least one picture that is less shaky.|
|There are insects everywhere in this cave. So please do not jump when you see crocroaches running around the walkway.|
|A type of catfish is found in the stream inside the cave.|
|Sorry because not many good picture that I able to capture in this cave because of the limited source of light.|
|Here they are coming out from the caves. Their timing is really sharp.|
|They are flying out in a group so you wont see a continuous line like this for the whole session. They fly out as if they are all belong to the same family and another family will fly out after the previous one has finished.|
|It is amazing to see the bats flying out like a shape of a dragon.|
|Overall, Deer Cave got nothing much excitement compare to Lang Cave but the only spectacular thing is watching millions of bats flying out from this cave. Truly amazing!|
