Forest reserves near Hong Kong

Last full day in China, spent at one of the forest reserves near Hong Kong. Hong Kong has quite a bit of green space, both inside and outside the main urban area. And with Hong Kong subtropicalcloser to the equator than Havanathe forest is luxuriant.

In addition to the scenery, a number of native birds, lizards, and one snake. Despite the warning on the sign at the park entrance, only had a few brief sightings of the resident non-human primates, which are rhesus macaques. Failed to get a monkey photo. I'll spare readers the video of moving branches that is the only documentation I actually saw one. In fact, little success with wildlife photography at allsee tail end of the snake (look carefully) as example.
