Another Walkaround at Singapore Botanic Garden

Singapore Botanic Garden is one of my favorite place whenever I have some space time for photography.

Dragonfly

Dragonfly
There are several pond in the garden and dragonfly is one beauty that you will not miss. Darting around water edge, the hotter the weather, the more active they become.

Monitor Lizard
This garden is also one of the few area where you get to see 2 very similar but different species of monitor lizard. On the left is the Malayan water monitor (Varanus salvator) and the one on the right is the Clouded monitor lizard (Varanus nebulous). How to tell the difference? It may be a bit difficult from far, if you look closely, the main difference is the position of their nostrils. The Clouded monitor lizard's nostrils are lie mid-way between the eye and snout.
Cicada

Cicada
Another game I like to play in the garden is to try finding the Cicada location. They can be heard singing loudly everywhere in the garden but is a challenge to locate or spot them. Once you see one, you see all. I got them on video too. 2 male cicadas fighting for one female...
