Not great, but some shots for the record. Two Lesser Adjutants (Leptoptilos javanicus) spotted soaring high in the sky near the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve area, Singapore, on 10 April 2021.

The Lesser Adjutant is a large wading bird in the stork family. It is considered Vulnerable and is a rare resident bird.

Spotted this Indo-Pacific Horseshoe Crab (Subfamily Tachypleinae) moving in the mud during low tide on the seashore at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, Singapore, on 4 April 2021.

People sometimes mistake them for the more well known Atlantic Horseshoe crab.

This Malayan Bushbrown (Mycalesis fusca) kept moving about, so I had to patiently wait until it settled down before taking these shots. Spotted at Chestnut Nature Park on 2 April 2021.

The last time I saw one in Singapore was in 2017. It's not as common as other species of Bushbrowns here.

Spotted this Stinkhorn fungus at Chestnut Nature Park on 2 April 2021. It was still attracting some insects, although I couldn't smell it.

This is not meant to be crude, but its genus name is Phallus.

Spotted this lovely mantis, probably a Golden-armed Mantis (Hierodula venosa) at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, Singapore, on 4 April 2021. It was also the centre of attention of visitors who passed by.

A red-tailed hawk spotted along the bike path today. It flew up to an electrical transmission tower, perched there for a minute or two, then took off again while I was trying to catch a photo.

Golden-crowned Kinglet, Louisville, Kentucky 2021-11-08.

These tiny birds move around a lot and are difficult to photograph.

Northern Flicker (Yellow-shafted), Louisville, Kentucky 2021-11-12.

This was one of the few times I've seen this species in my backyard. The photo is kinda blurry, but these woodpeckers are so beautiful, so it's worth it.

It's cool how transparent their wings are in sunlight.

A Sumatran Sunbeam (Curetis saronis) spotted at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, Singapore, on 4 April 2021. It had just eclosed as we saw the pupal case below it on the same leaf.

Finding a butterfly that had just emerged from its pupal stage is always nice as they are easy to approach. It is still getting used to being an adult and not keen to fly away yet.

NIce to be able to spot this Green Tree Snail (Amphidromus atricallosus) at Chestnut Nature Park, Singapore, on 2 April 2021. Looks like the recent rains have bought them out of hiding.

The Green Tree Snail is native to Singapore and usually only found in mature forest areas.

A male Brown-throated Sunbird (Anthreptes malacensis) spotted at Pasir Ris Park, Singapore, on 28 March 2021. A common sunbird but I see it less often compared to the Olive-backed Sunbird.

A Common Redeye (Matapa aria) spotted resting on a leaf at the Herb Garden and Butterfly Garden area of Pasir Ris Park, Singapore, on 28 March 2021. Good to be able to spot it there.

The Common Redeye is considered a moderately rare butterfly.

This Oriental Pied Hornbill (Anthracoceros albirostris) flew in and perched on this nearby tree. Then, it quickly moved and grabbed a lizard before flying to another nearby tree to feed. Seen at Pasir Ris Park, Singapore, on 28 March 2021.

Thanks to a tip from another couple in the area, we managed to see this Dog-faced Water Snake (Cerberus schneiderii) at Pasir Ris Park mangrove area, Singapore, on 28 March 2021.

The Dog-faced Water Snake is apparently a common snake in the mangrove area, but it usually hunts fish and invertebrates at night, so it is not often seen in daytime.

Happy to spot this Malaysian Pied-Fantail (Rhipidura javanica) while walking at Sungei Serangoon Park, Singapore, on 27 March 2021. It was singing while moving about and fanning its tail.

On iNaturalist [ [, where I've also put a recording of its calls.

This is a common resident bird which, as its name suggest, fans its tail as a display.
