A Common Faun (Faunis canens) spotted at Windsor Nature Park, Singapore, on 4 August 2020.

It's a common local butterfly, but still nice to see them flitting about in the shady forest floor near the walking paths.

Didn't see the King Parrots today, but did have a Cockatoo drop in and raid the feeder.

I took a few close pictures before encouraging him to head back to the palm trees where he should be.

I was on leave today, so I went to Windsor Nature Park, Singapore. Not much seen due to the cloudy weather but the walk ended with this close (and safe) encounter with a Wild Boar (Sus scrofa) that was rooting in the ground near the broadwalk for food.

It also crossed over the broadwalk to take a look at the other side, before turning back and moving off into the forest.

Where does the cable go? This is much less than some streets I’ve seen here. This is down my little street here.

In order to stay away from the busy areas of the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales, we found somewhere in the North Pennines we've never been to before: Ashgill Force.

Loads more photos here if you like iancylkowski.com/blog/2020/8/2 👍

I did an experiment shooting these photos on this hike: aiming to shoot for SOOC. It was fun.

The passion of these young guys is really impressive! It's always a joy to take pictures of their games. I try to do as often as possible! 😀

Happy to finally spot the Hieroglyphic Flat (Odina hieroglyphica) today, 2 August, 2020 at Upper Seletar Reservoir, Singapore. It was quietly resting at a sunlit spot on a forest path.

Despite appearances, this is a butterfly (a member of the skippers) and usually rests with its wings flat, showing off the distinctive, cryptic patterns on its wings.
