Ai Ling and I were lucky to get onto a boat first. At the same time dark clouds coming from the Punggol side congregated above us and soon the rain started pouring furiously. Many visitors were "stuck" at the jetty waiting patiently and orderly for the rain to stop. Thanks to the fast-dispersing clouds, we didn't have to wait long. After renting a few bicycles, we were heading straight to the Butterfly Hill, Ai Ling and her friends were on the wheels but I preferred walking.
This robber fly is quite small but its compound eyes are rather attractive in colour. Resting rather tamely on a twig in the shade, it refused to change its perch despite I "reset" its position.
