An observation from 2019 that I've uploaded. The Five-bar Swordtail (Graphium antiphates), spotted in Johor, Malaysia.

This butterfly is a swift flyer and can be recognized from its long, sword-like tail.

Got a surprise this morning. Spotted this Palm King (Amathusia phidippus) on the walkway near International Business Park (at Jurong East), Singapore, on 20 Jan 2021. I wonder how it got there.

The Palm King is a moderately rare butterfly in Singapore that is usually active in the evening, so seeing it in the morning was unexpected.

Another observation recently uploaded from 2019. A female Banded Marquis (Bassarona teuta), spotted in Johor, Malaysia.

I am not certain, but I believe this is considered a rare butterfly.

My first Hellebore to flower, Helleborus 'Painted Bunting', in the snow.

It's not yet fully open, but you can appreciate the lovely pink veins running through the petals.

When the King Parrots aren't flocking to the veranda demanding seed, they tend to just chill in the nearby trees.

A not so 'good' observation. A New Guinea Flatworm (Platydemus manokwari) spotted in the Hougang area. Looks like this invasive species has spread far and wide in Singapore, even into urban areas.

It is considered "to be among the 100 of the world’s worst invasive species." [ (PDF) ]

Encountered this Pin-striped Tit-Babbler (Mixornis gularis) while walking at Chestnut Nature Park, Singapore, on 17 Jan 2021. It was calling while perched above my head and stayed there long enough for me to get this shot. :-)

While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
“’Tis some visitor,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door—
            Only this and nothing more.”

An observation from 2019 which I've recently uploaded. A Crimson-breasted Flowerpecker (Prionochilus percussus), spotted feeding in the forest in Johor, Malaysia.

The pupa of a Tawny Coster (Acraea terpsicore) butterfly spotted while walking from Punggol towards Coney Island, Singapore, on 9 Jan 2021.

The rain held off long enough to let us go for a walk in the morning at Coney Island, 9 Jan 2021. Among the things spotted as this wonderful architecture that looks like a miniature pile of logs created by the caterpillar of a Bagworm Moth (Family Psychidae).

A nice start to observations in 2021. 🙂

Yes, I know, these are terrible photos. But after days of constant rain over the New Year in Singapore, I was glad to get out for a brief time in the morning, long enough to get shots of my first bird of 2021: a Brown Shrike (Lanius cristatus), the first one I've seen in the neighbourhood, perched high up on an antenna.
