Rain oh rain, how does it affect the bugs?
The trip was rather short-lived however, showers came just after an hour or two. But before then, I chanced upon a few common sights of Admiralty Park…!
#1 The weather didn’t dampen the moods of this pair of mating Orange Spotted Tiger Moths. You can probably see that the sky in the background isn’t at it’s brightest!
#2 OK maybe I dampened their mood.. lol. They moved apart after I pointed all my flashes at them!
#3 Still moving around, but I’m quite sure moths have only 1 copulation position!!
#4 And the cute couple poses for a head shot together 🙂
#5 Victim of recent floods. This Brown-Legged Orb Web Spider shows off it’s grumpy face while trying to fix it’s web, which was probably dismantled by the rain
#6 “Leave me alone!!! *sigh*” The despondent looking ant perches alone at the tip of the leaf, deep in thought.
#7 I don’t really know if this is a fly or a beetle. Head of a fly, body of a beetle! This clip shows how it tries to dry it’s wings and body with the use of it’s hind legs. Yogi in the making!
#8 Must’ve spotted a flood down below and prepares to take a dive. It’s actually very beautiful with a metallic blue body and bright red head
#9 A common St Andrews Cross Spider, clinging on as I felt the rain starting to pound on my lens (arhghghhggh!!)
The rest of the trip was spent galloping away from the park as I witnessed yet another rainy day. Take care you little critters, I’ll be back next week!
