The Kent Ridge Kampong
Victor said that he used to live there, where it used to be a kampong. Hard to imagine that with what it looks like today.
#1 Mating pair of bugs. Could be broad-headed bug or squash bug. Didn’t have the top view to verify.
#2 Closer view on the one that was busy sucking
#3 Large beetle about 2.5cm long. Saw a few of them at this size, contented with nibbling on leaves.
#4 Up close to its face!
#5 An orange robberfly. The rest of the group found at least 3 others, but all flew away before it was my turn to shoot. 😛
#6 Beautiful caterpillar. Larva of the Orange Awlet (Burara harisa consobrina). Information on the butterfly here.
#7 Face of the cat. Wonder if the locations of the spots have anything related to feng shui… lol
#8 Another caterpillar, with a strikingly sharp and long tail. Not sure of ID though.
#9 Found several of these lizards. Appeared dull brown initially, but turned out to be yellow
#10 Another lizard. This had a slight orange hue.
#11 Huntsman Spider doing some tai chi. Spotted this fella running around on a pile of dead leaves. The reflection from its eyes gave its location away.
#12 Up close with the hairy guy
