Early Morning Shoot at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserves

Haven't had a chance to update for some time as my newborn princess demands my time and attention. Nevertheless, managed to find time to make an early morning trip to the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserves 

The reserve is located in the north-west of Singapore. It is very popular among bird-watchers. 

Macro opportunities are pretty good too :)  

#1: Common sun skink - sun skinks are most easily found and photographed early in the morning, while they are sunning themselves. They're very shy and skittish so its important to approach gently when attempting to photograph them. 

#2: Jumping spider: very common resident of the local nature parks. The "high jumpers" of nature. This one's female, judging by its abdomen.

#3 Orange Fly: I see these flies often, but i don't know much about them other than they're probably Family Lauxaniidae.

#4 Leaf Footed Bug - I nearly mistook this for a assassin bug on account of its needle like mouth-part. But on closer examination (and subsequent research), its actually a leaf-footed bug nymph :)

#5 Brown beetle: a rather unexciting shot of a pretty unexciting brown beetle :)

#6 Black and yellow mud dauber: named for the nests which they build from mud, this attractive specimen landed in front of me just as i was preparing to pack up and leave :)
