Nangka in the Rain

15 July 2011
A trip that started with threats of rain all day. We started late and managed to reach the end of Nangka Trail before Durian Loop, and thats when it started to really pour. Just a couple of usual finds, no special topic of interest today. ūüôā

Tailless Whip Scorpion (Amblypygi) - DSC_0356#1 We went straight to the Whip Spider (Amblypygi) section for a few warm up shots

Tailless Whip Scorpion (Amblypygi) - DSC_0359#2 Just a very slightly different angle

Tailless Whip Scorpion (Amblypygi) - DSC_0361#3 Reminded myself to take a photo from above, good for record purposes and identification! Cropped because of the Raynox.

Stick Insect (Phasmatodea) - DSC_0369#4 Found this Stick Insect (Phasmid) munching away on a leaf

Stick Insect (Phasmatodea) - DSC_0371#5 *nom* *nom* *nom*

Springtails (Collembola) - DSC_0377#6 James found a bunch of red Springtails (Collembola) on this log. Never really noticed them before, really tiny fellas!

Cockroach (Blattodea) - DSC_0379#7 Cockroach resting on a leaf. Eyes out of focus ūüôĀ

Cockroach (Blattodea) - DSC_0380#8 Another view of every family’s favorite bug

Cockroach (Blattodea) - DSC_0383#9 I called this an Ang Mor Cockroach because the eyes were blue!

Scorpion (Lychas scutilus?) - DSC_0384#10 Scorpion staring down at me from the tree trunk. Wonder if it’d just drop on me?

Got walloped by the rain after this shot, so we quickly wrapped our stuff up and sloshed our way out!

The complete album can be viewed here.
