Well, is always good to head outdoor into the forest for bird watching, photography or simply enjoy the calm & peaceful environment.

However, sometimes it can be quite a gory experience when you have multiple leeches feeding on your blood. The wounds left by leeches can bleed from few hours to even days. This was due to the anticoagulant hirudin in the leeches' saliva.

Here's the very beautiful leech that I capture with my camera... they are very beautiful, don't you agree?

Long Tailed Macaque at SBG

This is the 2nd time I saw a macaque at Singapore Botanic Garden. Perhaps the weather is too hot today... ?

Peacock Royal

I was taking photo of sunbird at Singapore Botanic Garden and was attracted by this beautiful butterfly with a very bright blue colour.
Peacock Royal
 It was indeed a Peacock Royal butterfly (Tajuria cippus maxentius) that usually feed on Ixora flowers.

 This butterfly may have a very bright upper side but their under side are greyish in colour.
