Bugs And Grub!

WARNING: Do not continue reading this post if you are entomophobic or arachnophobic.

After a hearty brunch, Stanley dropped me home to gather my macro gears while he dabao-ed food for his family. He picked me again for our macro session with Vince and Andy later that morning. – from previous post

Here’s what I shot in Pasir Ris Park 😀

Blue Nawab Butterfly caterpillar (Polyura schreiber).
Locally, we nicknamed it Dragon Head Caterpillar.

Ants feeding on a caterpillar.

This I’m supposing is a mother ant, she’s carrying her baby and running away from predators.
A mother’s love will carry her child through!

This mosquito resting vertically on a tree was the size of my whole thumb.
It was humongous!

Vince said this spider had the face of a monkey.
Do you agree?

Vince who was standing next to me had a lot of comments when his friends saw this picture as he was caught smiling!
None of his photos had him smile and this was unique if not shocking to his pals.
They joked that he burst into laughter upon hearing me fart 😦

This Mangrove Heavy Jumping Spider (Hyllus Diardi) was what I had laid down to photographed.

For size referencing, that’s my left hand holding a leaf the baby Mangrove Heavy Jumping Spider was scurrying on.
It was slightly smaller than the size of my thumb nail.

Oh my gawd, woman! Why are you chasing me???
I’m not a super model on a glamourous runway 😉

Andy (left) took this photo with my Samsung Note 4 on a 10 second timer.
I may looked awful, all swollen up from water retention and lack of sleep but I had a wonderful time with my macro kakis this afternoon 😀

Happy shooting and bonding 😀

I’m flying off today to visit Borobudur, a 9th-century Mahayana Buddhist Temple in Magelang, Central Java, Indonesia. See you next week! Have a blessed weekend 😀
