Night Walk Along Island Country Club Road (02 Aug 2019)

The weather this week was hot and dry with totally no rain at all. As such, I decided to take a walk along the Island Country Club Road for my night macro photography session.

Here's a photograph of hundreds of spiderlings encountered during the trip.

The first beetle for the trip was a 2 mm Ladybird Beetle, found under a leaf of an Elephant Ear Plant.

Moving further down, I was thrilled to find a first-time-encountered 2 mm Ground Beetle. Upon closer examination, you can see that the Ground Beetle was covered with fine hairs all over.

On a rotten tree nearby was a 4 mm Fungus Weevil resting on a small tree.

Near to the Fungus Weevil was a smaller 2 mm Fungus Weevil.

On a small tree near to the Fungus Weevils was this commonly encountered 2 mm Darkling Beetle.

At the base of a large tree was a commonly encountered Chafer Beetle (Adoretus compressus) munching on a leaf.

On another tree was this 4 mm Darling Beetle.

Moving deeper, I was glad to be able to find this lovely Ground Beetle (Catascopus dalbertisi) resting on a fallen log.

On a large tree nearby was this interesting 10 mm Chafer Beetle with many dots or dimples on it.

The last beetle of the trip was a commonly encountered Chafer Beetle (Apogonia expeditionis).

The number of beetles encountered during the trip was very low by Windsor Nature Park's standard, but nevertheless, it is still a good trip given that I managed to find one first-time-encounter beetle.
