MacRitchie Nature Trail

If you want to start your nature/wildlife photography, Mac Ritchie reservoir is the place that will suit photographer or photographer to be. From landscape, macro to wildlife, you name it, it has it.

I always like to start my walk here early in the morning. Beside the cooler weather, the reflection on the water when the sun rise is so beautiful.
Malayan water monitor lizard
As I start my walk, this Malayan water monitor lizard is having it's breakfast too. I have no idea what it was but it took the lizard around 5 minutes to swallow it.
MacRitchie Boardwalk
One of my favorite stretch is this boardwalk. Whenever I pass this area, there sure to have some surprises for me. I usually spotted birds & snake around this area. This place is also good for Instagram... natural green tunnel!

This is not mirage... but is real. The building at the background is Bishan/Ang Mo Kio area. Isn't it beautiful when this place is still misty? The mist will be gone once the weather get hotter.
