Before the Blackout, the Merlion is still visible from Esplanade.
This cicada is just right beside me, it really make lots of noise. The forest will be very quiet without their presence.
I was having persistent high fever 2 weeks ago and was first suspected to be dengue. Luckily the blood test show negative. Just when I was about to pass through the Fresh Water Pond, I was swarm by mosquitoes and decided to go back to the Main Hide area to try out my new tripod.
I met Ria, Brandon, Dr Chua with the spiders team while on my way to the Main Hide. Thanks Ria for the offer but I decided not to follow as I am now trying to avoid being kind blood donor for mosquitoes... :-) The HSBC volunteers were there too! I met them at the Main Hide area.
I didn't know mud-skippers also are annoyed by mosquitoes too. Just look at the photo above. Whenever the mud skipper surfaced, the mosquitoes will circle and stop on the exposed area.
This good swimmer usually mistaken as crocodile. Well, there are also reptile but a water monitor lizard (Varanus salvator) but not crocodile.
