It isn’t exactly Yellowstone National Park (I hope to set foot there someday), but it is a place of nature I have come to love. MacRitchie Reservoir underwent a face lift a couple of years back; people of my age would remember their secondary school’s cross-country held at an older version of this reservoir park. It has been garnering popularity as a nature hotspot since it’s revamp. You see all walks of life.
I have been running at this reservoir on numerous occasions over a span of 2 years. I never really did pause and breathe in the life nature has to offer. So on a particular Sunday, I headed down with a bunch of photographic enthusiasts. Many mosquito bites, but I would say it is worth it.
It was really hard not to showcase every single photo; that would span a lengthy post. Nevertheless, here are some of the highlights I have picked. I did omit some spiders though less you let fly screams. Thanks for viewing!
I wonder if they glow in the dark?
A rather passive jumping spider.
On a memorial hill.
This monitor lizard was huge. A regular feature in the waters near the golf range. I remember I was running past the golf range on one occasion and it was swimming against the shimmering backdrop of the lake, beautiful.
It’s flutter was gentle.
Something by the boardwalk.
A beautiful caterpillar, definitely one of my favorites.
I wished I had the eyes in focus. A crimson marsh glider.
Droplets of water on web, presumably.
Would never have spotted it if I was not alerted by its rustle.
The hammerhead fly.
What you would call a cricket, in natural light.
Really lil fella.
Celebrating the diversity of life.
