About me

I’m Jamiun Micheal, from Sabah, (Borneo) Malaysia. My current location is Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia. Actually, this is not my profession to photograph wildlife. I’m doing this for my hobby and of course inspired by the beauty of our natures. I hope this site can be as part of image references for insects especially for the “Land Below The Wind”.

Some IDs of insects posted in jamiun.com was obtained from experts through social network by sharing my images with them and I mentioned them as for credit. Some of them are entomologist or at least an expert in their own field. You may noticed that some ID’s here are followed by this symbol ‘?”(question mark). In these cases, I as the author of this site is not really sure about the ID. But I believed so based on a few reading. If you wanted to use the information, please consider further reference. I might be wrong.

Please be inform that I’m not dealing with any insect collectors. I did not buy or selling any insects. I need to highlight this because of too many peoples out there asking the same question.

All images are photographed in Sabah (Borneo), Malaysia otherwise stated different and mostly life specimens. When talking about life specimens, it is clearly describe that I will photograph wildlife in their natural habitats.  This will add more fun as I will visit more places repeatedly and explore new area to photograph wildlife.

I will update or add new images from time to time. If you wish to use a picture, please send your request via any of my contacts. You can reach me by email: iwa_city@yahoo.com Or jamiun@ums.edu.my, and my Facebook (just send to me your text via Facebook messenger) https://www.facebook.com/jamiun.micheal.

    1. Hi Waldo,

      Thanks for visiting my site. I always share my photo with some very special groups on Facebook. For insects, i share my photo with Entomology group. For Katydid and Cricket, I share my photo with The Orthopterists’ Society group.

      I suggest you to join Entomology group. Share with them your photo and ask for ID help. Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2208833392/

  2. Hi Jamiun. I was looking at a photo of a Lethe butterfly specimen captured by my wife and when I was searching for its ID, I came upon your beautiful photos here. Good work, mate. I wish I could join you in Sabah, where nature seems among the most pristine in Malaysia. Thanks again!
