The very first beetle that greeted me is this orange leaf beetle. It seems to be in great abundance here:
Moving along, I came across a Net-winged Beetle (Taphes brevicollis). Sadly, my camera was a little slow and while trying to get a good shot of the critter, it flew right off the view-finder and disappeared. Despite looking for it around the place,I was not able to find it.
Just as I was lamenting the missed opportunity (I have always been wanting to get a photograph of a Net-Winged Beetle), adjacent to where I am is a huge birdnest fern. "Perfect habitat for the Tumbling Flower Beetle!", I was talking to myself. Indeed within a few seconds, I spotted two cute little Tumbling Flower Beetle (Glipa malaccana) :
Not easy to take photograph of this beetle without a tripod but thankfully I managed to get a few clear shots.
Just then a tiny Ladybird Beetle flew near me.
I just simply love the color of this little beetle!
By chance, I stumbled upon a track that I have not tried before. The track is tucked away in a corner and would not be obvious to any casual passer-by.
Not much happening along the track but I was able to spot a tiny little weevil beetle. It is interestingly patterned - it is like wearing a striped pyjama.
Walking further on, I came across this really tiny little weevil beetle. I think it should be atmost 2mm if not 3mm in size.
Walking pass two anglers along the trail (or should that be poachers?), a small and colorful beetle caught my eyes.
Pardon the poor shot as I wanted to capture the shiny color of the beetle without using the flash. Incidentally, the place is under some tree canopy. Guess in future, I would need to have flash diffuser to allow better focus and lighting,
After shedding buckets of perspiration and just when I am ready to leave the place, a little beetle came out to bid farewell.
Although I didn't come across many beetles, the walk was pretty good given the fact that I got a glimpse of a Net-winged Beetle and get to snap some photo of the Tumbling Flower Beetle.
