The Hardworking Rain God
It rains every year during Hari Raya Puasa, no? Today’s visit to the park was expectedly short-lived due to the downpour. Managed to shoot some houseflies hard at work. Seemed to be effective as the little rain gods had the sky battering down over Singapore within an hour.
#1 Found the little ones mating deep in the bushes. Rather skittish, as they flew off (without disconnecting) when I tried to move closer
#2 Spotted them again on another leaf! They were going all out, it’s hard to describe in words.. so move on to the next picture!
#3 With a shutter of 1/30s, their intense movement could be observed. Comical in a way, their romping had the leaf shaking too!
#4 Flew to yet another position, with a slightly different tone in the background.
#5 Lynx spider captures a long legged fly. From far, I thought it was a male lynx, but found the poor fly which I mistook for it’s palps.
#6 Closer look. Yup, it’s a female lynx!
