A Wild Place Near Punggol Waterway
A natural habitat at Punggol Waterway Park enriches the biodiversity of the area. I came to this wild habitat on 29 March (my last visit to this place was about one year ago) to explore the place again. Tawny Coster (Acraea violae) was again thriving here - they were fluttering around and displayed different perches on a sunny morning.
This is another female resting on a blade of grass.
The male has brighter uppersides.
But this male was not so lucky as it was trapped in a spider web.
There were a few Blue Pansies (Junonia orithya wallacei) sunbathing on the ground. They were extremely alert and getting a decent shot was a great challenge.This male Blue Pansy moved around on the ground, giving me a chance to snap a quick shot.
A Forest Hopper (Astictopterus jama jama) was zipping around. When it perched and fed on the flower, I took a few shots.
A neglected small butterfly, the Lesser Grass Blue (Zizina otis lampa) was fluttering on a grass patch and their occasional perch gave me a chance to take some shots.
I came to a stream where there were lots of prominent pink snail eggs attaching to some twigs, concrete bricks and even leafs.
