The trail was still pretty much wet due to the past few days of rain. Nevertheless, the place is nice and cool, with a fresh smell of jungle in the air.
Walking briskly did not stopped me from noticing the critters around and sure enough the very first beetle that I came across was a small 2mm leave beetle. Do pardon the quality of the photographs as I am still trying to get use to the Raynox Super Macro Lens.
After walking for almost 2 km before I noticed this Black Leaf Beetle resting on a leaf.
After crossing the Tree Top Walk suspension bridge while climbing up the wooden stairs, this little colorful beetle appeared. It has a bluish metallic sheen on its elytra but it didn't turn out nicely under the camera flash.
Looping back after the suspension bridge, I found this shiny beetle on a leaf, perhaps still not fully awake due to the coolness of the air.
On the way down the wooden walkway, this weevil beetle was found clinging to a broken leave of a fish-tail palm.
Passing the Singapore Island Country Club, this little beetle (1mm in size) appeared as a black dot on a leave. As I zomed closer and found that it was a pretty little beetle with two red spot on its elytra. The color contrast between the red and black was outstanding.
While I was happily snapping away on the tiny beetle, I saw a flash of blue at the corner of my eyes. I quickly turned from the view finder and found this lovely metallic blue colored beetle. What a wonderful find.
Moving along a narrow path, I saw a little beetle (3mm) underneath a palm leave. When I zoomed in with my camera, I was thrilled. It has such an interesting color combination. Pretty little beetle!
As I almost reached the end of the trail, my eyes were captured by two nicely colored flat worms. Just then, I saw a speck of red coloration (1mm) on the tree trunk where the two flat worms were. Zooming in with the camera and found this lovely beetle.
I didn't know what it was initially due to the dented elytra, as the dent made it looked like some fungus of sort. It was only when I zoomed closer that I saw the elytra that I recognised it to be a beetle. So glad that I have the Raynox macro lens as it gave really good close up without the distortions on the side that I experienced using my previous closeup filters.
Just when I am done with the tiny beetle that the sky suddenly turned dark and threatened to rain. It was a great trip as I managed to burn off some fats and at the same time, got some wonderful shots of beetles.
