Look Into My (Black) Eyes
#1 The Black-eyed Litter Frog (Leptobrachium nigrops) with beautiful black eyes
#2 One leg forward
#3 No matter how I looked at it, the black glassy eyes were still as attractive!!
#4 Like a boss
#5 Shifted the environment and managed a brown background of the leaf litter
#6 Victor comes into the picture… in the background. lol
#7 Final shot of this handsome froggie. On a side note… it seems to walk more than hop!
#8 This little moth was mating earlier, think I chased away his mate. oops!
#9 Victor found this very unique fungus weevil, with ridiculously long antennae!!
#10 Guess where are the head and legs of this beetle??? lol
#11 Jumping spider (Salticidae). It behaves a little like Siler sp.
#12 Lazy to get a direct front view, so here’s a view from above!
#13 Melvyn found this ground beetle, and called it the fake violin beetle
#14 With the broad body and thin neck, doesn’t it look like a violin??
#15 It had a very dark body, but completely covering it with my flash ends up in this weird colour
#16 On the same log, Melvyn found this very strange but colourful bug, complete with a big drop of water on it’s back!
#17 This was what held me back for almost an hour. This Kerrengga Ant-Like Jumper (Myrmarachne plataleoides) was running around non stop, and kept turning away from me
#18 It had a very cute face, with eyes almost bigger than anything else!
#19 Somehow I took a break from waiting for the jumper and went back to the fake violin beetle. lol
#20 Side profile of the kerrangga ant-like jumper.
#21 Yes it likes to raise it’s legs as well
#22 Lovely pose by the jumper
#23 Trying very hard to get a nice portrait
#24 Acting like an ant — the legs are mimicking the antennae of an ant.
#25 Still not looking at me, so I took a pic of it doing some funny actions
#26 Final shot before I gave up trying to take a perfect portrait. lol
#27 One of the many wandering spiders (Ctenus floweri?) we found
#28 A green huntsman spider (?) guarding it’s egg sac. From far, it looked as if it was carrying the egg sac, but it is actually attached to the leaf!
#29 Victor pointed me to this lanky spider on the way out. Possibly a nursery web spider?
#30 Playing with some back lights. 🙂
