Here are my entries:
Pic 1 – Common Birdwing Caterpillar (Troides helena cerberus)
The Common Birdwing is the largest species of the Papilionidae family found in Singapore and it is an endanger species and protected under CITES. This one which displays a pair of orange processes at the head is called osmeterium, and is extended whenever the cat is alarmed. It also oozes out a red liquid that appears threatening. However, the osmeterium and the liquid is harmless (at least to humans!)
Pic 2 – Backlit
I think photography is about painting with light. This young leaves have caught my attention when I was walking along one of the forest track at Venus Drive. The patterns and hairy details of the leaves becomes obvious under the light and through the lens.
Pic 3 – Team Work
Weaver ants (Oecophylla longinoda) are eusocial insects of the family Formicidae (order Hymenoptera).
They are not only known for their remarkable cooperative behaviour used in nest construction but also their collaborative work in attacking a larger insect. Spotted this particular predators & prey actions at Pulau Ubin during one of the NPSS outing.
