Search for Glowing Mushrooms
#2 Nope! It is a bio-luminiscent mushroom! Glows in the dark, cool eh? This was just a tiny mushroom, about 1cm in height. Can’t wait to find a mass of them to give the feel of being in Pandora. lol
#3 First pair of mating subjects found before I even reached Wallace Trail! These Stick Insects (Phasmatodea) were pretty large, so I had to shoot from about 1 metre away!
#4 Shooting from the other side, where you can see the connection between the male and the female
#5 A Katydid squeezing out from it’s moult. Often see the bugs moulting at night, but this is the first time I’m shooting this.
#6 Longhorn Beetle (Cerambycidae) which flew deep into the bushes, I had to trudge deep to get this one
#7 Since I was already there, had to get a head shot!! Dimply faced, the amazing thing about insects is… every member of the same species looks almost identical. Even the position of the dimples could be exactly the same.
#8 This was the Tiger Beetle that was found resting on many leaves. All of us had a Tiger Beetle to shoot at the same time!
#9 Let’s look at it’s face!
#10 Previous shot wasn’t close enough, adding more magnification for this one!
#11 RAWR!!! It decided to bare it’s mandibles at me. Quite a sight!
#12 A stubborn weevil closes it’s legs and plays dead
#13 Opened it’s legs for a while, realized we’re still around and went back to it’s guarded mode
#14 Side view of the weevil
#15 Final shot of a turquoise coloured Tiger Beetle! Was hanging upside down, so I rotated it slightly
