Vestalis beryllae

Borneo is extremely rich in Vestalis species. These Vestalis species are hardly distingiushed by photographs except V. beryllae. Vestalis beryllae has extremely long abodomen. It could be straight away recognized from far by its long abdomen. Vestalis beryllae is normally spotted at slope far away from water, and always only present in one or two individuals. I photographed this V. beryllae at the ridge of Imbak Canyon. It was a tough and tiring journey to go up to the ridge of Imbak Canyon, and this nice V. beryllae photo paid off the sweat and hard work of me climbing up to the dangerous ridge!
