#4 Didn’t really like me and had the legs open for a moment

#6 Head shot
Lots of other findings other than the huntsman spiders. I dropped by Venus Drive to take some shots of the Ypsotingis as I didn’t get any good shots of it in the previous week.
#7 Ypsotingis, with 2 enlarged cysts on it’s back
#8 Somehow, it refused to stop moving once I started to take aim. Might be very sensitive to the focusing light.
#9 Details on the wings
#10 Side view
#11 Some bioluminescent mushrooms were also spotted on a dead log
#12 Not many mushrooms, so I just zoomed into 2 that were close to each other
#13 Katydid with a dark green body and white legs.
#14 Founds some eggs… where’s the mother???
#15 There she is! A Epeus flavobilineatus counts her eggs once she returned.
#16 My Precious!!
#17 All round protection as she turns round and round.
#18 Wolf Spider rests on a leaf
#19 Adult Assassin Bug
#20 Top view of the wings
#21 This spider tends to spin webs on a single leaf
#22 Tailless Whip Scorpion (Amblypygi), almost a permanent resident of Nangka Trail
#23 Close up shot of the Amblypygi
#24 A golden coloured Robberfly. Flew off after I took this shot. 🙁
#25 “Santa Claus” Longhorn Beetle. Might have been dead for some time as the fungus engulfed it’s body.
#26 White Striped Wandering Spider
#27 A large House Centipede devouring a cockroach
#28 Side view, with the background lighted up using a torch
#29 A beautiful scorpion with it’s sting perched high up
#30 View from above
