Upper Seletar, 10 July 2010

My first trip to Upper Seletar with James and Marcus, with some fascinating finds!

An unknown egg case that was bilaterally symmetrical.

Busy ant. Ants often make bad photography subjects as they tend to scurry around, really fast.

A huntsman spider?

Golden web spider.

Marcus spotted this stick insect.

And this painted chorus frog (Microhyla butleri) which quickly jumped off out of sight.

Tiny fungi growing along some of the tree trunks.

Harvestmen were commonly sighted.

I found this mysterious looking moth which looked like a rabbit, as James commented.

Marcus spotted this pretty blue-coloured skipper (Family: Hesperiidae).

Derbid planthopper with vibrant colours.

Whilst examining a hanging caterpillar I found this house centipede resting on a leaf just behind me!

This caterpillar had amazing long false antennae at its tail end.

And it looks really cute too!

The hanging caterpillar which I was shooting earlier. These seem to be pretty common and I have seen them on other night trips elsewhere.

On this trip alone we sighted several other caterpillars.

I really wonder what the ID of this alien-looking caterpillar is.

Cricket nymph with exceptionally huge jaws.

A very tiny bug, but such beauty!

A fungus infected fly, my first time seeing one.

Marcus found this scorpion feeding on a cockroach. James has a cool photo of this taken under UV light here.

Before we left, Marcus found a toad that puffed itself up big, apparently attempting to scare us off. Look how cute its pose is!
