The Macro Shoot That Turned into Something Else...
#1 Not Particularly Good Ant Mimic Spider (Corinnidae). James mentioned it to me, but why such a verbose name??!
#2 Lynx Spider with supper, looks like a cricket?
#3 James spotted this fat snake... what is it!?! Couldn't see the head, so we went round the tree to try to find the snake's head.
#4 Found the head!! But why is the tongue perpetually sticking out?
#5 Turned out that it had just devoured a lizard! Found this view, it should be a Gold-ringed Cat Snake (Boiga dendrophila ). Not sure why it doesn't swallow up the tail as well, maybe it was too large?
#6 Wagged a branch near to it and it started flapping its tongue. lol. Looks like its smoking a cigar from this angle.
#7 Hasselts Spiny Orb Weaver (Gasteracantha hasselti) but without the spiny back in the pic. Evidence of laziness as I already had the Raynox DCR250 on my lens. :P
#8 Rufous-tailed tailorbird (Orthotomus sericeus) Kindly identified by Ivan and Steven. Found this little fella resting under a leaf at knee-level.
#9 Bug with very intricate patterns on its back. Bad habit, missed a proper shot of the body again.
#10 Look deep into my eyes!!! Dark sided chorus frog (Microhyla heymonsi) spotted by James. I had the Raynox on, so just took a view of its eyes.
#11 A bright red assassin bug (Reduviidae) hiding in a crevice
#12 Closer look at the proboscis used to pierce its prey
#13 Moth. No ID for this fella, but it has rather nice patterns on its wings.
The complete album can be viewed here.
