A Common Sailer (Neptis hylas) spotted at Coney Island, Singapore, on 26 Jan 2020.
It is part of a group of butteflies commonly known as Admirals and Allies (Subfamily Limenitidinae) which can look like each other and can sometimes be hard to ID to species level without a guide to identifying marks

"Human language is lit with animal life: we play cats-cradle or have hare-brained ideas; we speak of badgering, or outfoxing someone; to squirrel something away and to ferret it out." - Jay Griffiths
This is a frontal shot of the Indian Palm Squirrel, a creature that one hears all the time. I hadn't really got myself to click one till this lil dude was literally dancing in front of my camera. Shot at Hampi last Nov.
Some Asian Glossy Starlings (Aplonis panayensis) spotted resting in the trees and on a fence while walking about near my workplace this morning (22 Jan 2020) in Singapore.

Two Pale Mottle (Logania marmorata) butterflies spotted while walking at Kent Ridge Park on 18 Jan 2020.
They are members of the Miletinae subfamily and have a relationship with ants, although not much is yet known. Here, Odorous Ants (Subfamily Dolichoderinae) are interacting (not attacking) with it.

An Olive-backed Sunbird (Cinnyris jugularis) that settled on the plant near me while walking around my workplace in Singapore on 17 Jan 2020. Managed to get a few shots of it before it flew off again.
Sunbirds are the Old World equivalent of the more well known Hummingbirds from the Americas.

This article is about the recent win10 exploit. I hope most of you don't even use microsoft, but the article contains the best, most compact description of public key cryptography I've ever read. Scroll down to the bit titled 'A toy version of the attack'. I think it would be good to share with non-geek friends who still recall a slight amount of algebra:
A Common Kingfisher spotted resting at the Pandan River, Singapore. Spotted on 14 Jan 2020.

Welcome back, 'old friend'. :-) My first sighting of a Long-tailed Shrike (Lanius schach) for this year, after spotting it while walking around my workplace in Singapore last year. But I have no idea (yet?) if it's the same individual.
