Reservoir Edge Opposite Sembawang Park Connector
The thunderstorms followed by intermittent passing showers on Saturday 17 May lasted the whole morning. In the late afternoon around 3 pm, the sun started to warm the ground. So, I decided heading out to Mandai, opposite the Sembawang Park Connector.
My first shot of the afternoon at the reservoir edge was a pink critter, perhaps a nymph of a shield bug. It was found on a Singapore Rhododendron leaf.
A rather common but colourful and attractive shield bug was seen at the same location before. In fact, I could find more of this bug when I search around the plants carefully.
A Malay Viscount (Tanaecia pelea pelea) was flitting around before settling down on a leaf of the Singapore Rhododendron.I am not sure if this is a kind of Ricaniid planthopper. It was turning its wings up and down while I was taking this shot.
