It's my birthday today, 7 Feb 2021, and nature indulged me by giving me a look at a local rarity, the Lesser Mousedeer (Tragulus kanchil). Spotted at Chestnut Nature Park, Singapore. Such a nice present. :-)

The Lesser Mousedeer is considered 'Critically Endangered' and in local folklore is considered a crafty creature ("Sang Kanchil' in Bahasa Malaysia).

Interrupted someone at their lunch time.

Not sure if this is a sharp-shinned hawk or Cooper's hawk. Hopefully someone at iNaturalist will correctly identify the bird!

My first sighting of a Sumatran Gem (Poritia sumatrae) this morning (18 Oct 2020) at Upper Seletar Park Reservoir.

For a cloudy morning without many butterflies to be seen, this was a gem of a spotting. πŸ™‚

The Sumatran Gem is a moderately rare butterfly that can be found in forested areas.

For the first time, we met a goldfinch that was unconcerned by our presence.

A pair of mating Common Four-Rings (Ypthima huebneri) spotted at Upper Seletar Reservoir Park, Singapore, on 19 July, 2020. The Ring butterflies were out in force on that day: lots of them spotted all along the path during our walk.

If you point your camera long enough at a perched bird, you might tick it off into flying, and if you are lucky, you might get a picture of the bird's graceful flight.

We saw proboscis monkeys in the wild!

In Bako National Park, Sarawak, Malaysia, back in December 2018.
