Night Walk Along Upper Thomson Road (01 Nov 2019)

The weather was pretty good and so HW and I decided to go for a night macro photography session. For this night, we decided to take a walk along the Upper Thomson Road. There were several types of mushrooms along the route that we took, and here is an interesting looking mushroom with its furry cap.

Sadly there was not many beetles along the road and this 5 mm commonly encountered Darkling Beetle came after a while of walking.

Some more walking before this commonly encountered Chafer Beetle (Apogonia expeditionis) was found on a freshly eaten leaf.

The last beetle was a surprise find as I was not expecting to find any of this Fungus Beetle (Episcapha xanthopustulata) along the route.

The number of beetles encountered was really pathetic. Without doubt I will unlikely to come back on this route for my night macro photography session.
