Trail outside Dairy Farm Nature Park

On a hot Sunday morning, this trail linking the entrance to the Dairy Farm Nature Park to the MOE Adventure Centre was almost deserted giving us a wonderful sense of peace to hunt for tiny insects. Given the abundant greenery and variety in vegetation it was easy to get distracted from our objective to photograph flowers and plants around us because insects provide the challenge that tests our eyesight and patience to the hilt. Still, I managed to photograph some insects that emerged later in the morning as I guess insects are either late risers or do not like to run the danger of getting their wings wet. See how I passed 3 hours last Sunday morning along a short nature trail.

Cousin of the previous spider.

There is a baby cricket next to the flower.
