My first shot of the morning was this well-camouflaged baby praying mantis.
A rather colourful and robust-looking fly with a metallic green sheen on its body attracted my attention. It stayed quite tamely on the edge of a leaf, oblivious of my presence.
But with this shot, I could confidently say that this is a Palm Bob (Suastus gremius gremius).
This moth was found "sleeping" on a cement column next to the copper sculpture murals which showcase some historical events in Singapore.
This uniquely patterned skipper is a Hieroglyphic Flat (Odina hieroglyphica ortina) which was found along a sunlit path. It came down to feed on bird dropping in a typical habit that most Flat species would demonstrate - opening its wings flat on the ground while puddling.
Occasionally, it decided to warm itself on various sunlit spots, enticing us to take more shots. It rested on a plank of wood.
Next moment it was on a leaf.
When it perched on a high leaf, it gave me a good opportunity to take a shot of its undersides which look similar to its uppersides.
