Exploring Admiralty Park again

8 May 2010
In Admiralty Park, you don’t really need to be able to spot the bugs. Just follow the regulars and patiently wait for them to finish their shoot, and take over the spot! lol. Well, you can also learn from them as well, just make sure you share your finds when you do find something interesting!
