Millipede, Thailand
While shooting with my DSLR, saw this millipede crawling under my tripod. Instead of change my lens, I use my iPhone instead.
Carterpillar, Thailand
I have no idea what caterpillar is this or what butterfly/moth will they become.
Coral Fungus, Thailand
Saw this patch of very beautiful Coral fungus at Keang Krachan National Park.

Octopus Watching in Singapore

If you want to look at marine animals such as octopus, you can either go for diving or you can visit inter-tidal area. I choose the later and get to watch octopus at a really close distance and without getting wet!
