Deer Cave in Gunung Mulu National Park (Borneo)

Deer Cave is a passage about 150 m (500 feet) in diameter and about 1 Km (0.­6 Miles) long, opened on both end.­ It was, for many years, considered the largest single cave passage in the world.­

Photo processed in True Tone HDR with Tone Mapping from 3 RAW exposures.­

Unfortunately the photo has quite a lot of digital noise, because i did not have a tripod high enough, so i had to take all 3 exposures hand-held at high ISO.­ The HDR processing also tends to increase the noise.­ If i could have used a tripod to get low-ISO long exposures, this photo would have been outstanding.­ It's one the best photo of Deer cave that i have seen so-far.­

Deer Cave is a passage about 150 m (500 feet) in diameter and about 1 Km (0.­6 Miles) long, opened on both end.­ It was, for many years, considered the largest single cave passage in the world.­

Deer Cave is home to about 4 million Wrinkle Lipped Bats that live in colonies high up in the cave ceiling.­ Every evening all the bats fly out in huge swarms and clouds to feed.­ View my video of the swarm of bats leaving Deer Cave.
